George Millar Posted 20 February , 2018 Share Posted 20 February , 2018 Hello, Perhaps this subject has been discussed before; if so please forward me to the relevant posts. I’m doing some research on Lieut Robert Lewers Keown, RAMC who was born on the 9th October 1887 in Co Monaghan to parents James Keown and Mary Holland. By 1911 he had passed his medical studies and became a Medical Practitioner living at 84 Palatinate Buildings, Rodney Place, London. In late 1913 he married Olga Irene Fredrikke Jensen in London and when war broke out he enlisted and was made a Temporary Lieutenant in the RAMC on the 10th November 1915 (14th Dec 1915 edition of the London Gazette). He later went to France disembarking on the 30th November 1915. He survived the war but in 1924 he applied for divorce from his wife who had been having an affair with a Robert Henry Guy Balten. He died on the 27th September 1925 and his address was listed as 1 Askew Road, Shepherds Bush, London. I have searched the National Archives for his Service records to give me some idea of his service in WW1 but haven’t been able to find any record of them. This is the second RAMC officer whose records I haven’t been able to find. Do the National Archives hold records for RAMC officers or are the records held elsewhere? If they are held elsewhere how do I go about obtaining a copy of them? Any information would be appreciated. Thanks George Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
