Officers and N. C. O. 's  .

of the H. C. B.

 

As the Huntingdonshire Cyclists were a territorial Battalion and then seemed to become a training Battalion for officers and men, it is only possible to give an idea as to the structure of the Battalion at a given point in time. The list below is from early 1915 when the men were on coastal patrols in Yorkshire. The layout of 8 companies is shown below, but it was soon to be reduced to the 4 company system.
