In Response To: [WW I] Old Riding Crop ()

RGA is the abbreviation for the Royal Garrison Artillery of the British Army. In WW1, this organization provided corps and army level heavy artillery (as opposed to the RFA - Royal Field Artillery - which provided mostly divisional light artillery).

To my knowledge, the letters RCA were not used in an official capacity. Canadian artillery was designated by the letters CFA (Canadian Field Artillery). I will check to verify the letters RCA were not used.

I will also look for 165th RGA. This could indicate a regiment or company. (I think the latter, but I'm not sure.)

The date, August, 1916, could place the former owner at the Battle of the Somme (July - November, 1916). Unit identification will help to establish if this is true or not.
