About The Book

This volume is somewhat the unsung hero of Howard Williamson’s Great War Medal Collectors Companion series, perhaps due to its specialised nature. However, it is a remarkable piece of work that gives important core information.
Volume III of The Great War Medal Collectors Companion moves on to the Divisions and Units of the British Army and their locations throughout the Great War, and gives an in-depth look at the Royal Engineers, the Machine Gun Corps, and the Army Cyclist Corps. For each, Williamson examines areas such as:
Origins: How the Units came into being.
Roles: What was expected of them.
Equipment: What kit they used to perform their roles.
Organisation: Where they fitted into the bigger picture.
Deployment: Theatres of war where the various sections were sent.
Awards: Some of the honours and awards that were earned.
The contents are as follows:
The First Chapter gives a short history of the 76 British Army Divisions (plus Cavalry and Guards Divisions) alongside the dates and Battles in which they were engaged (82 pages).

The Second Chapter – Locations of British Regiments – shows the locations of each battalion of the Line Regiments (plus Guards, Cavalry and Yeomanry Units) throughout the War. Each entry gives Brigade and Division and date of entry to the Theatres of War. All changes of Brigade, Division and Theatre of War are noted (200 pages).

The Third Chapter is the gold medal-winning study of the Royal Engineer Units in the Great War. This includes locations, dates, battle honours, refined regimental numbers from Volume II, general duties and many contemporary photographs. An outstanding study (250 pages).

The Fourth Chapter is a study of the Machine Gun Corps in the Great War. It gives all unit locations and the Brigade and Division attached. In addition, there are a number of photographs and a section on the equipment and tactics employed (45 pages).

The Fifth Chapter is a study of the Army Cyclist Corps in the Great War and covers notes on their units, equipment and duties.
