At the start of the war the PAVG comprised a battery of artillery, strength 116, and a battalion of infantry that rose to around 500.

Here's a Magazine Lee Enfield Mk I issued to PAVG, which is stamped on the butt tang.
I came across a photo of Lee Enfields being issued to the unit [caption says Lee Metfords, but the term Lee Metford was used very loosely], and one of the slouch hat badge.




The past is not dead. In fact, it's not even past.
