@einsteinius,
The only thing i came across in an online search which might apply is Royal Army Clothing Department (this would be the equivalent of the American Quartermaster Clothing Stores).

I did, by the way, run across references to the Royal Army Chaplain's Department, but all of the references i found were to the Second World War.

@Setanta,
Thanks a lot, Setanta, my grandfather worked in the department before he joined up, to be killed at Ypres.

@einsteinius,
Glad i could help, Boss. My grandfather and my great uncles all served in France after 1917, and one was in the occupation force in Germany in 1919-20. They all made it home, though.
