I came across a chart for engineer equipment dated August 2 1942 which has the following lines on it: `Already supplied from Troopers" and "Balance to be obtained from Troopers". What is Troopers? I figure that it is the Quartermaster or something like that. Notice that Troopers is in capitals so it must be a title of some kind. Any idea?
oddly enough, Trooper just came on the radio, "Raise a little hell, raise a..."
In telegrams and correspondance between CMHQ in London and NDHQ in Ottawa, whenever they referred to the British War Office they used the word Troopers. This is probably a take from the fact that the WO was located at a building called "Horse Guards" so the cavalry term was quite appropriate.
