Staff Duties in the Field - regulations for road movement 1914 or earlier

#1
Hi Chaps

I have been looking for an early copy of the Staff Duties in the Field (1914 or earlier) and in particular for the regulations regarding road movements for the pre-WW1 army (rate of march, staff tables for length of marching bn/bty/sqn columns, rest periods etc) but with no luck so far.

Any suggestions where else I can try?

Have ever considered a device to take you this 'Germany'?

It sounds like a riveting read.

Can you let me know your findings please? I'm itching to get all the details.

Thanks for the helpful replies guys - I found a copy of the British Army Field Service Regulations 1909 on line and was able to download it.

Chocolate Frog - have you thought of f*cking off and annoying someone else?

I think you'll find that SD in the Fd didn't start until after WW2. The Field Service Pocketbook 1914 does include road space tables, it was reprinted by David & Charles Reprints in 1971. FSP seems to have continued into WW2, but by that time comprised around a dozen separate pams in a brown canvassy cover.

I don't think FSR will help you much, basically they dealt with formation level doctrine, but the separate admin part (Part 3?) may have something.

I can scan the tables if you want them.

Have you invented a device that can form electronic copies of physical pages?

Yes please, that would be great. If you can do let me know when they are ready and I'll PM with my e-mail address.

Thanks.
