Hi I have my grandad’s attestation papers and it looks like it says he was in the 2nd ‘ea’? Bde, would anyone know what this stands for? I think it is properly the 2nd Brigade, Am i right? and also where can I find out where he was in France?

East Anglian Brigade?

 

You'd have to give us some detail (name, service number, location), and possibly post the original writing.

Looks like 2nd East Anglian Brigade RFA, later known as 271 Brigade RFA of 54 (East Anglian) Division. Long Long Trail (top left of this page) notes that the unit did not go to Gallipoli when the Division went, staying in the UK and moving to France in Nov 1915 and prior to shipping out to Egypt to rejoin the Division in Feb 1916.

There is a War Diary which incorporates both 1/1 and 1/2 East Anglian Brigades  of the RFA here:

but as yet not digital.
