I seem to remember a forum topic (end of last year) with someone researching a soldier from 114 RFA ~ however they had been told by RFA museum and confirmed by forum members that no such brigade was raised and 114 battery never went abroard.

However I am researching another soldier, George T Clarke died 18/9/1918 ( Sarigol Cemetery, Kriston~Italy I think!) and named on Much Hadham war memorial.

Now the cwgc and medal index clearly shows he was a Lieut in c/bty 114bde. RFA

So can anyone help with info on G.T Clarke and esp' 114 bde RFA ( surely it must have existed !)

Richard,

Then you were misinformed

114 Brigade RFA (CXIV) was part of 26th div artillery and served in Salonika. A relevant diary survives for them at NA reference WO95/4864.

114 Battery RFA did exist and was part of 25th Brigade serving abroad in France along with 113 and 115 Batteries.

thanks for that answer, much appreciated.

After posting request i realised that the previous topic i refered to may have been on the units area....so i put in 114 rfa and found it....it was a november question. my memory seemed to be correct in what i said in my question~ however wasnt happy with the november answer.

So thanks again for your reply and answer, sounds good to me!!!!
