Default Railway Survey Section RE

Iím looking for a bit of help on this from our Royal Engineer collectors. I have picked up a British War Medal to a man who served in 1st Railway Survey Section Royal Engineers (ex 7th Welsh) during the 1st WW but cannot find anything about how big the unit was or where it served.
I would be most grateful for any information that may be forthcoming. I am going to ask on the GWF as well.
Thanks in anticipation.
Kevin

A wonderful chap on the GWF, JulianR, was a a great help to me when I found out my great grandfather had been transferred to the RE in 1918, to a Railway Operating Company. I think he’s quite the railway expert and he was very obliging.

He may answer your query anyway via your thread but, if not, it may be worth sending him a pm.

Have you also tried searching on The Long, Long Trail?
