After October 1916, known as B battery
241 Brigade, Royal Field Artillery

The following photographs show members of the 2nd Battery (based in Kidderminster). The large group photograph is believed to contain members of the Malvern Ammunition Column as well. The photographs were kindly made available to me by Gerald Clements, whose father Gunner Gilbert Clements is to be found as indicated.

If you can identify any of the men in these photographs, I would be very pleased to hear from you. I am also very keen to obtain similar photographs of groups of men or individuals from the Worcester (1st) Battery, later known as A/241.

If you have any information at all that would extend our knowledge of the Worcestershire Royal Artillery batteries at the time of the First World War, please send us an e-mail
