The War Diary Manpower Returns show Driver Fraser attached to the 1 TS as a member of the RASC but this appears not to have been the case, as he did not transfer to the RASC until well after the Battalion, and the Brigade, were disbanded. This was confirmed via his entry in the RASC Enlistment Books.
