Hello,

 

Does anyone know where I might find a list of Doctors serving with the 25th Field Ambulance in Salonika in March 1916. 

 

Thanks

 

Rob

Perhaps mistaken for 25 Casualty Clearing Station which was among the Salonika medical facilities according to an earlier GWF thread.

Hello David, Hello Max,

 

I am trying to identify an RAMC officer mentioned in a letter that I have. I believe the name is Dr Dewar - its hard to read the hand writing - he is described as having served with the 10th Division in Serbia and being with the 25th Field Ambulance. As you say I have now found the 25th was nowhere near Salonika. The man in question was also at Imbros during the Gallipoli campaign - from google it seems that the 25th Casualty Clearing Station was also there so that seems more likely than the 2/5 London Field Ambulance which was my other thought. Do you know if the 25th CC was in Serbia with the 10th Division?

Edit-  Glasgow Medical Jnl 1917 adds this:

Temporary Captain R. S. Dewar, M.B., Ch.B.Glasg. (1905), R.A.M.C, is a well-known practitioner in Govan, and holds the post of dispensary surgeon to Glasgow Royal Infirmary.

 

He was MiD again in 1917.
