Military Homes Hospital Reserve

Recommended Posts

KatharineSJA

Hi.  I am a member of St John Ambulance, trying to find out more about members of St John who gave their lives in the First World War.  I was wondering about the best source of information about the Military Homes Hospital Reserve and the Royal Naval Auxiliary Sick Berth Reserve.  I'm not a history buff, just looking for some easy to digest background information.  This is all quite new to me.  I only just found out about the munitions explosion in Faversham in 1916 for example.

Hi Katharine,

 

Welcome to the forum!

 

If you send me a personal message to remind me I may be able to dig out a contact for the RNASBR. Meanwhile this website has some information:-

Are you aware the St John's Museum undertook a WW1 centenary project concentrating on the Hospital at Etaples, perhaps their greatest single contribution?

Many men and women who had been trained by the Order, e.g. miners were asked to volunteer at the outset of the war most of the men went to the RAMC.  Have a look at local newspapers of the time, also invaluable in this regard Barbara Janman's site http://www.ramc-ww1.com/index.php

 

A former member of the Forum, now sadly deceased and much missed, Sue Light did extensive work on the Nursing Services in WW1 as a tribute to her work he Scarletfinders website remains open and is an invaluable resource http://www.scarletfinders.co.uk/index.html

 

A forum search on St John's Ambulance will also highlight many previous threads.

Thank you, Ken!  This is all very new to me.  And very useful.  I already found a little bit of the information I was looking for from Jane's post and this is also very useful.

The Roll of Honour listing the names of all members of St. John who gave their lives in the 1914-18 War is held by the Museum of the Order of St. John at St. John's Gate, Clerkenwell, London. It is usually on display in Chapter Hall.
