    Glad to hear that the records arrived. They are really the only solid basis to work from. 83rd Field Regiment RA did indeed form part of 53rd (Welsh) Division which accounts for the formation sign seen in the photograph. 6th Field Regt. were part of 3 AGRA (Army Group Royal Artillery) and were therefore part of a concentrated artillery group that could be moved from corps to corps as necessary. They were not part of a Division.
