Would anyone know where to find information on officers of the Royal Naval Armoured Car Division (RNACD), of the Royal Naval Air Service (RNAS)?

I have been trying to find entries in Royal Navy lists for 1914-1915, but am so far not succeeding.   I can find listings for RN vessels, but not sure where to look for RNACD.

Any help appreciated!

RNACD units (squadrons) do not appear as such in Navy Lists and the RNAS officers serving in the RNACD are usually listed elswhere (eg RNAS  Eastchurch) as for "Special Service". However, to make your life easy, not all officers so listed are in the RNACD but on other 'special service' (unspecified).

For starters this link will give you 28 23 RN all ranks, with about just under half-ish being officers, all with some sort of RNACD "Armoued Car" service. 

Russia features quite high which may be beyond your area of inquiry?

Can you tell us who it is that you are looking for? Perhaps that may help solve this

Unfortunately, not tracking a particular name. 

Rather trying to find out names (and medals) for officers of the different squadrons of RNACD.

Also, which squadrons were in a hot climate - e.g. North Africa and the Middle East.

Thank you for these insights!
