battiscombe Posted 27 January Share Posted 27 January It may be of interest that GHQ files refer to a letter from C-in-C to War office (ref Q/4000) "recommending a proposal that personnel of Trench Mortar Batteries should be provided with a distinguishing badge, and suggesting that the badge should be similar to that authorised for Grenadiers but of a distinctive colour. These badges to be granted to all men serving in Trench Mortar Batteries and will be retained only while the men are actually serving in the batteries" - diary entry dated 10 Dec 1915. National Archives' reference WO 95/28/6 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
