Does anyone here know what G1098 stores were please? Was this reference used throughout the army for specific stores or was it initially an RAOC reference? I did a search on Google that said that they were waterproofed items, is that correct? Also found the following on BBC's People's War site which made me think perhaps it was for clothing? BBC - WW2 People's War - Robert Hill's War After two or three nights bivouacking outside the town we destroyed the G.1098 stores sabotaged any unnecessary machinery and marched in convoy to the port of St. Nazaire. We arrived on the 17th June at ten o'clock, having marched seven miles many of us in new boots taken from the G.1098 before it went up in smoke. Thanks. Jules.
