Postby jrdrury » 16 Sep 2016 12:04

Hi
Just wondered if any one could assist ... Am heading to the national archive for some research around the light division and the rifle brigade.
Could any in help out by telling me which if any brigade the 2nd battalion were attached to.

I can find a list of regiments for both the first and second brigade but the rifles fall under neither list.

Many thanks for the help it's much appreciated.

This should be of some help. It appears that, intiially at least, the 2nd RB were attached to the Light Division as divisional troops, operating in wings as the C-in-C required.
