im looking to gain a war establishment for this can anyone help?
There are several, nearly a dozen.
To get the correct one: Any idea of theatre and date?
Italy cmf i believe 1944/1945
Looks most probably like XII/622/1 /Type "A") or XII 629/1 (Type "B"), both effective from 25-02-1944.
There is another for use with Italian increment.
Ok do you know the kew archive number to get these?
Sorry, I had trouble with the picture size on uploading.
Here they come
XII/622/1 A Heavy Anti-Aircraft Workshop, Type "A", R.E.M.E., North Africa, published in A.C.I. 1944-04-19, effective1944-02-25
pix 7460 to 7462
XII/629/1 A Heavy Anti-Aircraft Workshop, Type "B", R.E.M.E., North Africa, published in A.C.I. 1944-04-19, effective1944-02-25
pix 8991 to 8993
The reference in TNA Kew is WO 24/951.
I know this is an old thread but, piggy-backing on to it, I don't supose you have a similar publication for Heavy Anti Aircraft Workshop, REME, Western Europe, August 1944? I'm trying to research 98th Heavy AA Workshop and it's slim pickings.
This might be the one you're looking for. I don't think I've seen a differentiation between Type A and Type B Workshops for Heavy AA Regts but I think Type B was particular to Mobile Regts.
Separate names with a comma.
