    Good evening, what is the composition of 779 corps car coy rasc in 1944?

    Was this unit part of Company R.A.S.C which depended on the 4th Armoured Brigade?

    I'm looking for information about driver BUSS Hubert Ernest who belonged to this unit.

    4th armoured brigade
    • 4th Royal Horse Artillery (rejoint en juin 1944)
    • The Royal Scots Greys
    • 3rd County of London Yeomanry (Sharpshooters) (devient le 3/4th en juillet 1944)
    • 44th Royal Tank Regiment
    • 2nd Bn King's Royal Rifle Corps
    • 5 Company R.A.S.C (Royal Army Service Corps)
    • 14th Light Field Ambulance
    • 4th Armoured Brigade Workshops
    • 4th Armoured Brigade Ordnance Field Park
    • 271 Forward Delivery Squadron R.A.C.


    Thank you for your answers.
    cordially

    The Corps Car Company provided vehicles and drivers for the Corps Headquarters. None of these would be permanently detached to other units but there are many reasons why a vehicle from the company would be visiting any of the corps units.
