Royal Garrison Artillery in India

Postby karooch » Sun Dec 18, 2016 8:35 am

Thanks to WDYTYA magazine (Sept edition. Thank you Phil Tomaselli) I have discovered that my Grandfather served in the Royal Garrison Artillery. I managed to get his record from the Ministry of Defence and discovered that he served in No4 Siege Artillery Reserve Brigade and was posted to India from 1919-1922.

I have searched the Internet trying to find out something about the Brigade's service in India during this time but have drawn a blank.

Does anyone have any information about this?

Fingers and toes crossed

Karen

Perhaps you could try the Great War Forum if you don't get information posted here.

I think it is most likely that he would have been posted to the North West of India, perhaps somewhere such as Peshawar, but this is a guess only.

Up until about six months ago I would have suggested that you contact the Firepower Museum. However that Museum has now closed, the collection is in storage and currently not accessible, and there is no research service. The Museum is due to reopen in about five years and is to be called the Salisbury Plains Heritage Centre.

There is a published History which might have something relevant

Thanks Maureen. Hopefully I will be able to find some information a bit sooner than 5 years. Bummer that I missed out on The Firepower Museum by 6 months.

Cheers
