Remembered Today:

22nd North Midland Brigade R.F.A ( TF)


Recommended Posts


I was recently trying to find out about William Thomas Stevenson R.F.A i have now found out that he joined the 22nd North Midland Brigade R.F.A ( TF ) in 1915 and later went to 3/2nd Res Bn R.F.A and ended up with 62nd Res Bn R.F.A where can i find any information on the above units war diaries, photo's etc.

also he seemed to have three regimental numbers 2617 / 1455 / 806401 why would this be? i can't find a medal card for any of the numbers.

Thanks Again

Dave :rolleyes:

The 22nd should actually read 2/2nd North Midland Brigade RFA. It was "related" to 3/2nd, which was a training/depot unit for supplying men to 1/2nd and 2/2nd.

2/2nd went overseas as part of the artillery of 59th (2nd North Midland) Division. If he was with 2/2nd at or later than February 1917, he will have campaign medals. But maybe he transferred to 3/2nd before that and did not go overseas.

His 6-digit number is from the renumbering exercise of early 1917.
