This certainly isn't a book on Titanic but was hoping someone could help me with the term C.I.V's. Hayes is on Britannic and transporting troops. He's speaks of wanting to take the C.I.V's home but there were too many of them for his ship.

Anyone know what C.I.V stands for?

Thanking you in advance

My initial thought was he is speaking of civilians "C.I.V." but then reading further it's stated there were too many of them for the "Old Ship" and he sailed with "Invalids" and the C.I.V.s went home on Aurania.

Further into reading he says what an honour it would have been to participate in the fuss when they arrived back in England. He also shared his store with the Aurania ship and those on Britannic stood at attention while the C.I.V's walked along the decks toward their store-rooms.

This makes me wonder if it's the name of a special unit of the service.

If I find out down the line, I'll let you know.

Thanks for the input
