Remembered Today:

The index entry for a Royal Army Veterinary Corps officer in WO338 includes a note “(DSO) (REVS)”. (It is definitely not RCVS).

The DSO is confirmed by a London Gazette entry, but what does the (REVS) mean ? (I’m guessing possibly Remounts Veterinary Service. Unfortunately there is no open service file).

Any other ideas ?

Hazarding a guess! Royal Edinburgh Veterinary Studys/ School ? Part of Edinburgh University ?

John I cant think of a connection between (REVS) and the Royal Dick in Edinburgh, - where, coincidentally, my own father gained his veterinary degree (having avoided expulsion over "the lavatory seat incident" :D ).

Anybody any other ideas ?
