|Both ASC soldiers shown here are wearing Divisional badges on their upper arm. The man on the left has the yellow horseshoe badge of the 37th (New Army) Division.|
The man on the right has the "Dutch Tile" badge of the 47th (2nd London) Division.
Too often with troops of the large army units such as the Army Service Corps it is difficult to discover further information about a soldier's service. Even with a man's name rank and number an individual becomes lost among such large quantities of men unless we are able to narrow down our search.
Sadly Divisional badges, a tremendous help on this point, are not common in photographs.
