Army of Occupation 1920-1929

The Company was finally reduced to cadre strength of 2 officers and 40 O.R.s in May 1919. Early in 1920 it was decided to form a Company to send to the Army of Occupation at Cologne and 7 Field Company was reformed at Chatham. Lt H. A. Baker, M.C., who had served with the Company during the war, was appointed to reform the Company. The only other member of the war time was driver “Nobby Clark”, who served in the Company throughout the war as O.C.’s batman.
The Company proceeded to Cologne in April 1920 and was there, handed over command of Bt. Major B.T. Wilson D.S.O., finally returning to Colchester to its old Division in 1929 when the Army of Occupation was withdrawn.
