Where were the 55th Field Ambulance and the 37th Casualty Clearing Station located around the time my Grandad was wounded on 22nd August 1918??? He was serving with the 5th Berkshire Regiment. Any help appreciated :D

Just in case, are you aware that the Royal Berkshire Regiment war diaries are available online?
