Welcome to the Forum !

Can you expand upon any more details ? Do you have his unit and service number as it will help find more information.

I found a Field Ambulance 315 which was a part of 65 (Lowland) Division which didn't leave the UK, but no sign of a 354 on foreigh service or at home.

Thanks for the new info. I don't believe that FH is a ref to hospitals/med facilities. It is more likely a (treatment ?) process form reference, in my opinion.

One of the processes for the second (2.9.1918) wounding was admission to the 32 Stationary Hospital at WIMEREAUX France on 4.9.1918. It was from here that your subject was invalided home and hospitalised again in the UK a few days later. In the first wounding process (21.7.1918) there is an an interim move to another facility, (unreadable to me on the adulterated Archive digital record (!)), prior to another hospital admission on 23.7.1918, and from which he was discharged to Base Depot on 8.8.1918.

Your subject was initially GS/9386 2 Dragoons and later,prior to joining the RAF, was re-numbered as a member of the Corps of Dragoons, which is where your number D/13672 originates.
