Just discovered "Official History of the Medical Unit of the Royal Naval Division from its inception to the evacuation of Gallipoli" by Surgeon Rear Admiral Arthur Gaskell (Journal of the Royal Naval Medical Service, various issues, 1925-1926).

Any interest PM me.

Apologies for cross-posting to various forums but it means that those who scan rather than search will see it.

Thanks Maureen, those were the very links I was planning to post as soon as I had the time to look them up!

 

Do you need me to post a link to p.193? I'm not quite clear there.

Oh yes, I remember now. The first section is the decision to set up the unit, the training in Blandford, and ?transit to Gallipoli. Including a plan of Blandford Camp and some lists of personnel iirc.

Fantastic links - many thanks!

 

I have a long-standing project on the back-burner on an SRA in the Royal Naval Auxiliary Sick Berth Reserve in the RM Brigade, RND.  It's tangentially connected to the Liverpool Scottish commandos who went on the St Nazaire Raid in WW2.  I have some of his record and know he was at Antwerp, thus getting the 1914 Star, but getting gen on the RND medical services has been mostly unrewarding.  These links will really help!

Here is the link to the first part. NB p.195 which says: "The commanding officers and medical officers in the RN Division at Antwerp were as follows:"

https://archive.org/stream/JRNMSVOL11Images/JRNMS_VOL_11#page/n199/mode/2up

 

Sequence is Deal - Antwerp - Reorganization - Blandford - Crystal Palace.

 

Another list of MOs is given on page 206.

 

@MBrockway - Mark - quite a few mentions of the RNASBR at this link.

Thanks Jane - I'd already found the earlier sections from working backwards, but much appreciated all the same:  Happy New Year by the way!

 

This has moved that particular project forwards hugely: the RNASBR contingent at Antwerp is mentioned specifically several times.

 

My chap was in 9th (Chatham) battalion under Fleet Surgeon Finch at Antwerp and afterwards discharged back to Depot in Feb 1915 - exactly in line with the JRNMS articles.

:) I should have known you'd be able to find it out for yourself. Glad it's helped!
