Lieut & QM Rapson drew my attention to a soiled blanket which is stated to have been handed over to one of the Field Ambulance Motor Cars in exchange for one taken in with a patient sent in the Car. The suggestion that the soiling was due to brain matter is absurd as the soiled matter is distinctly food stuff, [meat] vomited – no brain case has been admitted lately. I investigated the matter and am satisfied that the exchange of the blanket did not take place at this CCS.

Owing to the shelling of Poperinghe, Field Ambulances evacuated cases to us. Told DADMS I could take in more cases than 300 and was allowed to use my own discretion in the matter.

Diane,

 

It seems that you are getting into the stride of reading and de-coding the material.  I think that this info is incredibly interesting for the movement of the ambulance trains.  There is a lot of general high level info on this aspect but the real detail is in the WD, and I thank you for taking the time to post your efforts. Having experienced the trials of reading WD myself, including the medical ones, I can understand the need to understand why you would want to make the effort.  

 

I already have a database of the fleet of ambulance trains in both world wars and am building a model of the Netley coaches.   Post is here

 

 

It will be possible now to put some more detail on the movements of individual trains.  Thanks Again and HNY.

I should say that there is little consistency in recording of named patients in CCS War Diaries. 17CCS (Diary ref WO95/343) has a rich seam of detail, as colourfully indicated by Diane here, but there are sections where there are evidently changes in the personnel either maintaining or counter-signing the document (this latter would be the driving force concerning what detail he wanted in the unit Diary) and naming ceased somewhat abruptly.In this case it ceased in May 1917.

When you bear in mind that all of the CCSs had to maintain an Admissions and Discharge Register ( a small percentage of which survive to this day in series MH106 at Kew) which contained such as name,number,rank,unit,problem,outcome etc it seems an unnecessary action to duplicate that info into a War Diary as well, so we have been "lucky" to see some of it where the A&D Registers no longer exist !

I cannot thank you enough for transcribing the war diary. I came across a photo of a friend of my grandfather  who was Pte J R Scott 11058.  On the reverse it states Jack Hebblethwaite, 17 CCS, Remy Sidings, Poperinghe 1916. This gave me info to search with and I found grandad Scott and his friend in your transcription. I have grandads personal diary for 2015. It is fascinating to compare the daily reports.  Thank you again - another bit of info on my family history research.

Fascinating stuff, and an amazing bit of transcribing.

If I have my facts right then Remy Sidings CCS later became the 10th Stationary Hospital as my father was one of the doctors based there in 1920 ( Captain Arthur H. Morris RAMC) .

It's now the site of the Lijssenthoek CWGC (with a great little visitor centre).
I'm sure they'd be pleased to see this info if they have not already done so.

The attached photo is of my father outside his accommodation hut in 1920 when it was the 10th Stationary and with a bit of Remy Quaglebeurs farm in the background
