494 Coy Army Service Corps

Formed in 1915 as a Home Front Company.

Moved to France in 1916 as 41 Divisional Supply Column.

Arrived at Rouen on 29/4/1916 which would suggest that the photograph was taken around 20/4/1916.

Despite being a mainly Thornycroft fleet in Chipping Sodbur, by the time 494 Coy arrived at Caestre on 5/5/1916, it had also gained some
Daimlers, Commers & Leylands.
