Remembered Today:

Units in Derby

Recommended Posts

In Kelly's 1912 directory of Derbyshire it lists the following territorial force units being in Derby:

Derbyshire Yeomanry

Royal Field Artillery

1st and 2nd Derbyshire (howitzer) batteries

4th North Midland (howitzer) ammunition column

5th Battalion Sherwood Foresters.

Can anyone tell me if any of these units served in Mesopotamia during the war (assuming they still existed then), or can anyone point me in the right direction to find out myself please.

Many thanks,

All the units you have mentioned spent their war in France. The exception to this was the 1/1st Derbyshire Yeomanry who served in Gallipoli, Egypt and Macedonia.
