Personnel known to have served in the Unit.
As the researcher was unable to gain access to the Army Enlistment Books for this Field Park Company, the only names which have been able to be included in this list are, firsly, those recorded in the War Diary (generally very few) or, secondly, and thanks to the advice of the Enquiry staff at the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, those who became casualties while serving with the Unit.
Family members are encouraged to get in touch with us, using the link below, if they are able to supply information to help complate the individual Memorial Pages.
