History of the RFA in the Great War

Recommended Posts

Guest A Mafia Man

Can anyone suggest a book, or point me towards any books, that may have been written & published detailing the history of the '5th London Brigade of the Royal Field Artillery' in the Great War please ?

I have looked around a couple of on-line bookshops but am not too sure of any titles or other details to successfully locate one.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Joe

As far as I know there is no unit history for the 5th London Brigade, RFA TF which later became the 235th Brigade, RFA TF in the Great War. The Brigade served with the 47th (London) Division and is mentioned numerous times in the history of that division. The London Gunners Come to Town: Life and Death in Hemel Hempstead in the Great War by Bertha and Chris Reynolds discusses the history of the 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th London Brigades, RFA TF in some detail and quite a number of officers and other ranks are mentioned. Are you researching a particular man?

The War Diary of 235th Brigade, RFA (formerly the 5th London Brigade, RFA TF) for the period from March 1915 to March 1919 is at the Public Record Office at Kew under WO95/2717.
