      Minor changes to the Forum   12/12/17

      We have altered the structure of the Home Fronts and Uniforms, Arms, Insignia, Equipment & Medals boards. We have removed the sub-category headings and now each board is more visible and easier to find. We have also renamed "About this website" and "Using theTechnology" to make it clearer where to post questions about the GWF website. We have also put a link ot the forum Rules on the main menu at the top to make them easier to find - particularly the section regarding requesting look ups on subscription sites such as Ancestry. Finally, for those who visit Skindles, there is a pinned post there detailing some changes to it.   Regards The GWF Admin Team

Does anyone know anything about the 13th artillery regiment that served in the French army during the Great War?

Not very much, I'm afraid, but the regiment had four Groupes, each of three batteries. In August 1914 the first three Groupes were in 19 Artillery Brigade, part of the garrison of Paris, and the fourth Groupe was in 1st Cavalry Division. On mobilisation the first three Groupes joined 10th Infantry Division.

 

I cannot trace any changes in depolyments of these units, but my sources on the French Army are scant!
