    Does anyone know how long this unit served in France prior to the evacuation?

    They don't appear to be included under the arm of service serials in the 11th April 1940 listings...which may or may not be significant.

    Arrived Le Havre 2nd April 1940 at 0800hrs and some of the Company left France via the beaches near Malo les Baines between the afternoon and midnight on the 28th May and the rest from the East Mole at Dunkirk on the 29th May.
