antonjdown Posted 12 June , 2008 Share Posted 12 June , 2008 Hi there My great uncle was in India as part of a territorial RFA brigade in 1916, around Calcutta, before at some stage joining the 18th Indian Division and ending up in Mesopotamia with the 337th RFA Brigade. He enlisted in Exeter, seems in 1915, but has photos of his time in India in 1916/17 in Barackpore and Barcatcha (pictures of field guns, comrades, "Sub A gun", "1/1st guns", "RFA Barracks, Barackpore, Bengal"). Now, I know that the 337th was in the UK at this time, so he must have joined it at some stage in Mesopotamia. What we're hoping to find out is which territorial units of the RFA ended up in India in 1916, so I can then continue the search for more information on him (Francis William Down). Thanks for any help anyone can give. Anton Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
