George Deayton Letter 2

  1. Ian. My Gt Uncle, Driver Hugh A Callan was killed at Ypres with all of his crew colleagues on 6th October 1917. They are buried together at Hooge Crater Cementry. However, when he volunteered he was (and is photographed) in the uniform of the Yorkshire Regiment, Green Howards Pioneer Regiment who have no record of him. Was this the norm as l can not find anything connected to his switch to the RFA.?
    Hope you don’t mind me asking.
    Thanks

    1. John, I don’t think this would have been unusual as it was common in the Second World War, so I would imagine it would have been the same in the First. My interest is mainly in the Second so not got that much information to help you with here, however I will have a look around and if I come up with anything I will let you know. Good Luck.
      Regards,
      Ian
