Have awarded myself one weeks Duty Staff Officer in the red tab HQ (red tabs don't do Orderly Officer) for stupidity but still think there are/were more military lawyers than either the MPSC or SASC

Since yesterday, but I don't know what happened to their Staff Band, I am assuming that it amalgamated with the RAChD Staff Band.

Shelldrake,
I think the answer to No 2 should read THE HAC.

Hi Shelldrake,

I cheeted, I looked up on the web but the answers I got were quite diverse. Some said the Coldstream Guards, another fellow said the the Royal Fuseliers (1st of Foot), etc so I settled for the HAC being in the majority of answers. Is it correct ?

I'm not sure, but you are probably correct, unless of course (as they used to say on "That's Life") you know better!

JB,

Are you asking 1) how many regiments of the line organized Pals Battalions or 2) how many Pals Battalions were organized?

I found this on Spartacus Educational. http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/FWWpals.htm

"Pals battalions made up a significant proportion of Kitchener's army. Between September 1914 and June 1916, a total of 351 infantry battalions were raised by the War Office through the traditional channels whereas 643 battalions were raised locally."

Pals Battalions were raised between 1914 and 1916 before the draft began being used to recruit manpower.

Cheers,
Dan.

I thought you were just having a go when you posted 994 in your first response. You knew the answer all along. You really do know your Great War history. As the kids say; much respect!
