1st Royal Naval Brigade
The brigade was raised in August 1914, from surplus naval reserves. By April 1915 it was known as 1st (Royal Naval) Brigade, but was re-designated as 1st Brigade on 2 August 1915. The Brigade was broken up on 2 July 1916, the staff joining the 3rd (Royal Marine) Brigade.
The infantry battalions did not all serve at once, but all were assigned to the brigade during the war.
