William George Mitchell
« on: Tuesday 31 March 20 16:46 BST (UK) »
Hi . Please can anyone throw any light on the above.
 William George Mitchell,was the son of George William Mitchell who was my GG Uncle. In the 1911 census William George is listed as 84th Battery RFO (Ceylon & India) Driver, I have a possible army number 34997. What does RFO stand for? Any other info would be much appreciated.
Many thanks  BALOO

I think the entry says RFA although the transcription is RFO.  Have a look at the other images - all seem to be RFA
