Can anyone tell me please, where RGA Companies 30, 73, 67 and 50 were stationed pre 1914.

I am trying to find the movements of Gunner John Fitzmaurice who joined the Royal Garrison Artillery in September 1899 Service Number 1102. He enlisted at Castlebar, Co. Mayo, Ireland.

He left the service in 1911 and re enlisted on the 15th August, 1914 at Bolton, Lancashire.

He served the whole of the war as Service No. 275475 in 109 H Battery RGA.

I would be very pleased if someone could answer my plea.

Try this file at the National Archives

WO 97/6335 Fitch - Furze 1900-1913

These are the files of soldiers discharged between 1900 and 1913.

Thankyou for all the info.

Can you recommend any literature that would give me more detail of where they were and what they were doing in those periods.

Thankyou for your info.

I will have to ask a researcher to go to the NA for me.
