Remembered Today:

India Expeditionary Force A

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 


I was hoping someone could help me with information on the transport of India Expeditionary Force A to Marseille. Specifically dates and route of transport (and any other addiitonal details) between Karachi and Bombay to Marseille, and then the same for Marseille to Ypres. Any other details appreciated

Welcome to the Forum IIDKev

War Diaries of individual units cover this in some detail- depending somewhat on the Diarist. Also embarkation from India if you are lucky; Do you have a particular unit in mind ?

Many individual regimental histories will mention this; sometimes in some detail.

The National Archives is offering free digital downloads as there is limited access to their Kew site . You'll have to sign in and download war diaries etc for free.
