My Great grandfather pte 3592 Bert Blows was in the 19th Field Ambulance & 10th (British) Stationary Hospital (Local newspaper started he was in a stationary hospital ((no mention of this on his medal card)) and on his medal card mentions he was in 19th Field Ambulance, which of these would have Bert gone into first?

Many Thanks

Regards

Liam

The MIC shows date into war theatre of 21 Aug 1914 and 19 FA,it is usual to show the first unit served in so 19 FA it is.10 Stationary Hospital was first deployed to Le Mans in Sept 1914 so he may have transferred there then,or possibly later. The "Stationary" bit should not be read strictly as that,it only stayed in Le Mans until Oct 1914 and then moved off elsewhere !
