Have got a very nice book in my possession which means I'm able to do a thumbnail picture of many of the formations of the major combatants of the Great War

For UK divisions please use the Main site here

Dave

THE WORLD WAR 1 DATABOOK BY JOHN ELLIS & MICHAEL COX PUBLISHED BY AURUM PRESS

It has most of the ORBATs, higher formations & numerous other facts about most of the combattants down to div level

Confused!

Are you saying you have pictures of commanders etc ?

And/or do you have commander and ADC info?

not a single photo in the book

It does not have commander info for divisons, but does for higher formations

Has info on political structures, ORBATS. There is some really obscure stuff in this book - I forgot I had it until I was tidying this morning

Arm,

For information regarding Army, Corps, Divisional and Brigade Commanders you require "The Order of Battle of Divisions" (Part's 1 - 4), compiled by Major A.F.Becke, R.F.A., and Parts 5A & 5B compiled by F.W.Perry, which lists all G.O.C.'s by formation and the dates they served.

The same Orbat's also list all dates of joining and transfers of units through Divisions, as well as actions fought.

Graham.
