Does anybody know the composition of the AVC that was attached to a RFA brigade?

 

Many thanks

Most likely a Mobile Veterinary Section

Hello Steve

 

The AVC personnel with a brigade RFA was a veterinary officer, but each battery, and the brigade ammunition column, had a farrier-sergeant and four shoeing-smiths, all of whom were RFA personnel, not AVC.

 

One Mobile Veterinary Section (one officer and 13 men) was attached to each infantry division.
