      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

Hello,

 

The sapper Charles Fredrick Saunders is buried in La Gorgue communal Cemetery (France - Nord) https://www.cwgc.org/find-war-dead/casualty/540850/saunders,-charles-fredrick/

 

According to information from C.W.G.C., he was in the 139th Field company.

 

Did this company really exist? Because I can not find anything wrong...

 

Thank you for your help...

 

Best regards

 

Loïc

 

This cemetery is interessing, concerning the royal engineers because there are Special company, Tunnelling company, Water transport, and also R.T. section (What is it?)

Hi Loïc,

From what I've seen there are only a couple of records for 250391 William Meakin.They say that he was accidentally killed  on 11th December 1917 whilst serving with a Railway Transportation Section, Royal Engineers.

 

I'm sorry, but I don't know what kind of duties he would have had.

 

Regards

Chris

Hi,

 

Terry, Chris, thank you for your help! also, thank you for the link, I will be able to find answers without disturbing you! Because I find it difficult to find units that were directly dependent on armies.

 

Thank you for the signification of "R.T. section" ! :-)

 

Best regards
