Was that a midnight/1am post?

 

I think CCS & FA diaries are great, lots of detail on aspects of the war that don't usually get raised.

 

As you've highlighted names I guess that's been the interest for you. I have all the CCS diaries that connect to the MH106 series that FWR have transcribed. I had a notion that extracting the names, numbers, injuries and any other relevant info from CCS (like yours) would then give another angle on the MH106, kind of a combined resource. Dare I say, additional casualty lists?

 

One of the CCS diaries I have has a significant list of names, mainly officers but includes type of wound and admin & discharge date. Plus details of deaths for some ORs. Not sure without looking if it's a MH106 related CCS.

Haha, you know me so well! Yup, I'm all for names, injuries, deaths etc to be available on this Forum. I remember being a newbie and searching for my rellies and only one came up but that was 'special'. I must be slightly macabre methinks

 

PS: Did you look at the latest email?

Yes, email seen and gratefully received. Thanks

 

I'm being a bit lazy here and not doing the transcription thing but as an example from 34CCS diary (in MH106 with FWR)

Clipboard07.jpg

 

Checked the first man - 18448 Sandy and he has 3 hits on FWR Military Hospitals Admissions and Discharge Registers WW1

 

And another from 36CCS

Not just casualties but also nurses arriving/departing, postings of RAMC ORs to other units, promotions, awards. Courts martial on Self Inflicted wound men.

 

One day we'll be linking men from the HA lists in the 'casualty List' topic to the CCS diary to those in MH 106 available on FWR and have a combined source telling part of a man's story.

Diane,

 

Could not agree more. When I happened to stumble across the WD for 3 CAN CCS also at REMY SIDINGS. My Great Grandfather Samuel Trim was mentioned along with his wounds that seems to tie in with his units WD "On 22 December the Company was relieved and began to move out of the trenches for rest at Erie Camp, west of Ypres. As it moved through the ruins of Zillebeke around 6pm, heavy shellfire fell".

I have got the RE to put up a wooden hut with a wooden floor at one end of the operation marquee; dimensions 11’ x 10’ x 6’ rising to 8’ for use as a sterilizing room and for boiling water. For this purpose I have placed the two Autoclaves and one Soylent Stove in it. I have had some shelves made also for dressing boxes etc. The Autoclaves and Stove are placed on sheet iron plates to prevent the risk of fire. I am utilizing a hospital marquee for the operating theatre and I had two operating tables in it to allow  two operations to be done at one time. I find the operating tent provided for the purpose is not large enough or so convenient as a marquee. Next to the operating theatre I have pitched a marquee as a dressing tent in which I have placed four ordinary 6 feet tables screened off by screens to enable 4 serious cases to be dressed at one time, if necessary; I find this a most useful arrangement.

I keep seeing the name of Sir Anthony BOWLBY,such a busy man if one assumes that he will visit more than just 17 CCS. Here a Wiki to illuminate his story:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anthony_Bowlby

 

I notice that he was a resident of Lyndhurst, but a handful of miles across the New Forest from here, so I will seek his grave on my next ramble to Ye Olde English Sweetie Shoppe in the High Street. They have genuine old-fashioned jars of the stuff, you name it or hanker after it from childhood memories of such as sherbet dabs, liquorice skipping ropes (well, perhaps not that), they have it !
