Nicknames of regiments

The following is a list of units transferred to the Territorial Force on 1 April 1908, or raised in that year under the terms of the Territorial and Reserve Forces Act 1907, and the associations by which they were administered.[1] The County Association of Rutland did not have charge of any units, but did provide facilities for sub-units of the Leicestershire Yeomanry and the 5th Battalion Leicestershire Regiment. A number of units, particularly those attached to the Royal Garrison Artillery and Royal Engineers, had their titles altered again in 1910.[2]

Yeomanry[edit]

Yeomanry regiments formed the cavalry arm of the TF, and were grouped into mounted brigades of three regiments each.

† Formed from part of the former 1st VB. When the battalion was converted to artillery in 1908, a number of officers had refused to transfer, and were placed on the unattached list. They became the basis for the 6th Battalion in 1912.

Army Service Corps[edit]

Each infantry division had an attached Divisional Transport and Supply Column of the ASC. A column consisted of four companies: a headquarters company and one attached to each of the three infantry brigades that made up the division. A smaller transport and supply column, consisting of a single company, was attached to each mounted brigade. While some of the ASC companies were formed by the conversion of existing infantry or artillery units of the volunteer force, most were newly raised in 1908.
