Make sure all words are spelled correctly.
Try different keywords.
Try more general keywords.

From the Internet:

In August 1920 Winston Churchill told the British Parliament that the BAOR comprised approximately 13,360 troops, consisting of staff, cavalry, Royal Artillery, Royal Engineers, infantry, machine gun corps, tanks, and the usual ancillary services. The troops were located principally in the vicinity of Cologne at an approximate cost per month of 300,000 (13,888,000 in 2021).[2] The Cologne Post was a newspaper published for members of the BAOR during this period.

From 1922 the BAOR was organized into two brigades:[1]

1st Rhine Brigade

1st Battalion Northumberland Fusiliers 19221926
1st Battalion West Yorkshire Regiment 19221926
2nd Battalion Queen's Own Cameron Highlanders 19221926
1st Battalion York and Lancaster Regiment 19221924
2nd Battalion Royal Berkshire Regiment 19261928
2nd Battalion Royal Welch Fusiliers Nov 1926 Oct 1929

Germany. The objective I suppose was to stop another war. Not a success .

Ireland. I am not sure there was an objective. Not a success.

World War One / Re: Certificate Proof of False Declaration of age WW1 Attestation
« on: Friday 19 February 21 02:43 GMT (UK)  »
I have only once come across a Birth Certificate sent to the Army to prove a False Declaration of age on a WW1 Attestation (non burnt). The soldier in question was underage  however not released from the Army but was sent back to Britain. He then was sent back to France when he reached his full age for service overseas. He was then killed.

I had never heard of a "Socialist"  in America but from the Internet  ......

"The Socialist Party of America (SPA) was a multi-tendency democratic-socialist political party in the United States, formed in 1901 by a merger between the three-year-old Social Democratic Party of America and disaffected elements of the Socialist Labor Party which had split from the main organization in 1899".
