Under A.C.I. 1588, dated 14th August 1916, No. 6 Artillery Territorial Force, to consist of Headquarters and 3 Batteries.


The Batteries were designated “A”, “C”, “D” respectively.


“A” Battery, consisted of 3/1st, 3/2nd and 3/3rd London Brigades R.F.A. (T)

 Major ALLBERRY commanding.


“C” Battery,  consisted of 3/5th and 3/6th London Brigades R.F.A. (T)

Major FITCH commanding.


“D” Battery, consisted of 3/7th London Brigade R.F.A. (T) and 3/2nd London D.A.C.

Major TURNER commanding.


The R.F.A. details remained with their present batteries except “B” Battery.  These were divided equally between the new “A”, “C”, and “D” Batteries.


Remarks by Commandant on the above reorganisation:


In circulating the above order reducing the establishment of this Reserve Brigade to 3 Batteries, the Commandant regrets that the redistribution involved will break up many personal associations amongst both Officers, N.C.O’s and Men.


He wishes it to be understood that the Battery to be absorbed was selected solely by the Division to which it belonged, and not the lack of efficiency in its training.


Similar reductions have been made in many other units under a comprehensive War Office Scheme and the Commandant hopes that all ranks will accept their new allocation with good spirit and continue the same high standard of  discipline.
