Good Evening.

My great Uncle was with the 24th Battalion Royal Fusiliers and was wounded on the 13th November 1916 up on the Redan Ridge, where would he have been treated first.?

Regards Andy

24 RF War Diary is digital and downloadable for £3.30 and you may get to see the Orders for the first day of the Battle of the Ancre when your GU was wounded with 5 Infantry Brigade of 2 Division:


There were three Field Ambulances attached to 2 Division: 5 : 6 : and 100. There may have been a link for each one to be attached to one of the 3 Brigades in the Division but you can't rely on the medics picking up only those who belong to their Brigade responsibility. Each of these have a War Diary but you are unlikely to get any detail of the casualties they collect,merely the quantity they have received or collected on a given day.

It might be worth trying the Forces War Records site as they have been digitising some Casualty Registers,and you never know,your man might be listed,even though so many of these Registers are no longer around:
