I have previously been asking about any info on the 141st HB RGA which my Grandad was in in1915 till his discharge through injury in 1918,i have had some good replies that have led me to war diaries of the 141st i recently have uploaded a photo of what I've been assured is the 141st HB RGA can anyone confirm and please give me anymore info however small.

Because of the info im getting I've booked myself on a Beaumont Hamel tour next April,and an ex RAF Regiment friend of mine is leading the tour of the exact locations so it should be full of info......and beers

I can't answer your question but look at the difference between the six draught horses and the horse ridden by the NCO.

I think that there are actually eight draught horses (with four drivers as well as the mounted sergeant) which a 60-pounder gun would have, and whilst the picture of the gun is not clear it certainly could be a 60-pounder or maybe a 4.7-inch. Either way, it seems to be from a Heavy Battery.

My mistake. Of course there are eight.
