The Wartime Memories Project - The Great War - Day by Day

6th May 1918

On this day:

  • 6th London Brigade RFA HQ moves   6th County of London Brigade RFA Adjutant and Brigade Headquarters moved to Frevillers. Lt Cooper 8th Lon Field Artillery Brigade took over duties of Adjutant to Right Group. 8th London Field Artillery Brigade Headquarters took over from 6th London Field Ammunition Brigade Headquarters. (Note: from this point the Batteries and Ammunition Column remain in action at Carency but Headquarters change over from 6th London Brigade to 8th London Brigade so action information is probably recorded in the 8th Brigade War Diaries with large gaps left in 6th London Brigade diaries for subsequent recording of events, but no details were filled in.)
