The T.F. Bn's each had half a dozen or so attached RAMC men. What I'm trying to figure out is where these men were attached from, where they attached from the Brigade's Field Ambulance or from elsewhere ?

Any assistance appreciated.

Hello Craig

No, they were posted to the unit and were separate from the field ambulances. This is not to say, of course, that they were not members of the field ambulances pre-war, but they were not "attached from" in the way that ASC drivers of unit first-line transport were attached from the divisional train.

The duties of RAMC personnel with battalions etc were mainly connected with ensuring the purity of water supplies.
