154th Brigade, R.F.A.

I am researching Major Frederick Bligh, formerly with the R.H.A., who rejoined on the outbreak of war after 21 years of retirement. He trained "B" Battery, 154th Brigade, R.F.A. "in connection with the Ulster Division" at Okehampton until they were ready to leave for the front in October, 1915. On the last day of training he fell ill with appendicitis and died soon afterwards.

His entry in De Ruvigny said of the unit he trained that "their splendid work ever since is testimony to his work". Where can I find an account of their "work"?

There is a bit of reading to be had in the Unit's War Diary which is at Kew under WO95/2496,but this is only for a short period of the War,from Nov 1915 to August 1916. My search of the Catalogue only brought up one reference,there may be more but under the Division or other wider Group,whatever that might be.

Best wishes
