Not sure if anyone can help - I would be very interested in finding out some more about The Gambia Company of the WAFF.

I have connections to The Gambia and am keen to take some information to Gambian friends when I visit again next year.

Thanks
Mark

Greetings

 

There's another tale to be told yet, when I have time, about the Gambia Company in the WW1 East Africa Campaign, where it went after service in Kamerun.
