Hi

On his medal index card it state's Disembarkation date 13/08/14

Campaign: B.E.F. (British Expeditionary Force) 1914, an abbreviation for the force sent to the Western Front in 1914

Arthur was awarded the Victory Medal and the British Medal both with clasps.

The date he died, he would have been fighting in the First battle of Ypres in Belgium.

A good source for his movements can be seen here http://www.irishguards.org.uk/pages/history/ww1.html


Hope this helps you

Best Regards - Ron

Hi Julie

It gets even more confusing:

Brigades are split into Battalions
Battalions are split into Regiments
Regiments are split into Company's
Company's are split into Troops
Troops are split into Sections

Confused now??:2fun:

Hi Ron I thought a Regiment has different Battalions
The Black Watch Regiment had up to 20 Battalions during the great war.

as for a Brigade they were battalions from different Regiments
and a Regiment is split into Battalions
Battalions are split into Companies

Dam, you have me confused now.......................:confused:


The command structure is hierarchical with divisions and brigades controlling groupings of units from an administrative perspective. Major Units are regiment or battalion-sized with minor units being either company sized sub-units or platoons. All units within the service are either Regular (full-time) or Territorial Army (part-time), or a combination with sub-units of each type.

How's that
