Peter & Steve,

Thanks very much for your responses. I might be being a bit dim, but above in the thread, #20, Peter has said that all these men were training for infantry commissions. The 2Lt WR Mitchell Steve mentions is relinquishing his RASC commission - not infantry. However, Peter has said that it was a 2Lt Mitchell who was serving as a cadet in C Coy.

Could this mean that 2Lt WR Mitchell RASC was in training to become 2Lt WR Mitchell an infantry officer?

Or did it not work like this?

Thanks for the responses gents, much appreciated and far speedier than my last one!

Nigel

My great grandfather was posted to this OCB on 7th April 1917. He was Temp 2nd Lieutenant Edmund Chadwick posted to Lancashire Fusiliers (served in the ranks with the 2nd Btn West Yorkshire Regiment), gazetted 29/8/1917. I would love to know anything about the OCB, the training he would have gone through, who else might have been on his intake, etc. 

 

Regards

 

David

This is a really long shot, but I work at Prior Park College and we have unearthed quite a few photos of the cadets but no listing.  Would it be possible to have a copy of the leaflet so that if anyone enquires we can help them find their relatives that may well have trained here?

Thank you so much and I have really enjoyed reading the trail, please do not hesitate in contacting me if anyone would like to look at the photos we have from WW1 cadets.

Welcome to the forum Carole

 

As you will see my Great Grandfather was admitted to that OCB in April 1917. Below is a copy of the relevant page from his service file. Any information you can share about the venue, course, and others on the same course as him would be very welcome.

 

If you reply to this you will be able to contact members via the Private Message system (click on their name, select the envelope icon and send your message).

 

Kind regards
