Tour of duty

    In the diary I am tagging a LT (T/Capt) H.Roberts "proceeded to England for 6 months tour of duty". What does that mean a tour of duty in England?

    Just that he was going back to England for a six month assignment, although without more detail it's not possible to say why. Regiments would keep a certain number of staff in the UK, to train replacements and so on, so perhaps he was joining them.
