Remembered Today:

157th (City of Aberdeen) Brigade RFA, 35th Division

Lost in Tilloy

Recommended Posts


Can I ask if anyone has any information on the location of the of 157th (City of Aberdeen) Brigade, RFA, 35th Division, between the time they arrived in France [30th Jan 1916] and the opening of the Battle of the Somme.

I'm researching Lt Robert Gilroy Bannerman [KIA 25th July 1916, Montauban] who served in 'B' Battery of this unit. I have plenty of personal info on him, but I know nothing about where his unit first served in France.

Any help appreciated.

After completion of training on Salisbury Plain, the Division embarked for France in January and early February 1916, being assembled near St-Omer. It then moved south and spent the first weeks of trench familiarisation in the Arras area.
