Hi Guys

Could somebody with a medical interest give me some idea of what D.A.D.M.S. is please?

I guess ift is D.A.D. Medical Service, but have no idea of what it is!

Many thanks

Hello Dianne

Just you give you a bit more background, these officers were usually of the rank of Major. The senior RAMC officer with a division was the Assistand Director of Medical Services (a lt-col) and the DADMS was his staff officer.

Corps had a Deputy Director and Armies a Director. In these higher HQs there were one or more DADMS, usually having a special responsibility (sanitation, ambulance trains etc) and often doubling as the medical officer for the officers and men of the HQ - their GP, as it were!
