X Brigade

This was a unit of Britain's pre-war regular army. It is also sometimes shown as 10 Brigade RFA.

History

  • Comprising 76, 81 and 82 Batteries, this brigade came under command of the 6th (Poona) Division of the Indian Army. 63 Battery replaced 81 before the Division sailed for Mesopotamia. It arrived there in 1914 and saw service in the Tigris campaigns before being besieged at Kut-al-Amara. The gunners were taken prisoner when the garrison of Kut was surrendered on 29 April 1916. The brigade was not rebuilt until after the war.
