Following on from my post in Soldiers about eight brothers from Norwich I wonder if anyone can shed any light on this unit? One of the mentioned brothers was supposed to have served with this unit in "East Persia" but I can't find anything about it. The MIC for this man only gives the Devons, who were in Mespot. Ideas?

The Offy History "Operations in Persia 1914-1919" gives an Order of Battle in Appendix III for the Sykes Mission for 30/04/18 Indian Army, and mentions Transport details at Shiraz and Saidabad. It mentions 60 British Officers and 13 British ORs spread among the Mission. No mentions in the Index, so can't track down any narrative.
