'Missing' Brigade of RFA

Recommended Posts

Guest Fluffster

My great-great Uncle was killed in August 1918 and is buried at the Bagneux cemetery. On his headstone it gives his unit as "B" Bty. 123rd Bde.

I looked this up on the site here, but the 123rd did not appear. Can anyone give any information as to why this is?

At present, the RFA Brigade listings cover the artillery units that were underthe command of Divisions. However, increasing numbers of Brigades were placed under Corps or Army command as the war progressed. I have not yet begun to add them to the site.

source "Orders of Battle of the British Land Armies" November 11, 1918.

Hope this helps
