I have come across by fortune a notebook that belongs in my family that has the following note. tell me if you can decipher it.
1/5 BW, 39 Div
I B D
C/o A P O
BEF (assume this is british exped. force)
trying to work out which of my lot it refers to. One of the thomsons but which? there are mixed reports in my family on my great grandfathers service. i know he wa sin teh MTASC for the 78th Field ambulance and the 1st. But this one is sort of left field. His brothers were in the 4/5th Angus & DUndee. so wondering...was there an Alexander S. Thomson in this division? What are the acronyms for? makes him hard to trace because he was underaged at the time of enlistment so his year of birth is unknown on the records. service 121169
can you assist?
