Hi All,

Can anyone point me in the right direction on how I might find which R.A.M.C. Field Ambulance my Grandfather served with during WWI? He has two service numbers one for the R.A.M.C, RAMC #35015 and R.A.F. Medical Service RAF #301452.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks,

AJ.

You may get some info from his RAF service record which is on FMP and Discovery,here the Discovery link:

Otherwise quite difficult to find a Field Ambulance, or wherever he might have worked in the medical field.

You could try to limit options by seeing which FAs first landed in France on 16 Feb 1915, again if he was with a unit on first landing and wasn't in a replacement draft !
