Hi

Done some googling on the Royal field Artillery have found loads
on the 46th Division but no mention of 46th divisional training battery

Just wondered if any one has any info on this, I want to try to build a picture
of my great grand fathers movements in WW1.

The only info i have on this is from my grandads birth cert june 1916
says fathers occupation

Driver
46th divisional training battery
royal field artillery

His name was Richard Latimer Sutton b1883 so 30/31 in 1914

also I have found 3 listing for medal cards on the national archives.

Name : Richard Sutton
Corps : Royal Field Artillery
Reg : L/34548
Rank : Driver
Cat Ref : WO 372/19

Name : Richard Sutton
Corps : Royal Field Artillery
Reg : 1539
Rank : Driver
Cat Ref : WO 372/19

Name : Richard Sutton
Corps : Royal Field Artillery
Reg : 872
Rank : Driver
Cat Ref : WO 372/19

Could these all be the same person? Im thinking this by the history of the
royal field artillery.

EDIT: He survived WW1 lived til 1940

Many thanks|bowdown|

No. There's a pension record in WO 364 for No 872.

The catalogue number being the same is of no significance. They're in alphabetical order so all the Richard Suttons are grouped together.

If you download the card, you'll get all of them.
