Divisional Train tagging
2 Division: 2 Divisional Train [28,31,35,172 Companies A.C.S.]
Can someone please clarify tagging a Divisional Train diary which I started today?
Should the Brigades mentioned, which are part of the same Division, ie 5th 6th 99th, be tagged as Other Units or not?
I assume the diary relates to all the above numbered Companies, but there are also quite a few other Companies recorded how do I tag these?
To date I have only tagged individual Brigades hence my confusion, apologies.
This is the first page I have tagged. Thanks Jan

Sorry for the delayed response, Jan.
I would definitely tag the brigades mentioned as other units, as well as any other companies which are not explicitly included in the diary's title.
Hope that helps.
Yes, thank you. Jan
Is loading lorries of equipment, coal etc at railheads for companies tagged re-supply or other?

When I've tagged divisional trains, I've used "Re-supplying" when the items--coal, rations, ammunition--are delivered rather than loaded. Equipment might not fall under the re-supply category unless it's explicitly stated that the equipment in question is replacing equipment that has been lost or destroyed.
If you're not sure, I'd suggest using "Other."
I hope this helps. If not, please ask more questions.
