    Yep, looks like you're on the right track with 1/5 Queens, 131 Brigade, 44 Division.

    Full title was 1/5th Battalion, Queen's Royal Regiment (West Surrey). Shortened at various times by themselves and others to:

    1/5 Bn Queen's Royal Regt
    1/5 Queens
    5 Queens

    No QRR (East Surrey) thankfully - that lot is confusing enough!

    The full diary you want is WO167/807, which covers their journey from Southampton to France/Belgium and their fight on the Escaut Line.

    Tim091 and Owen like this.
