Which Ambulance Trains evacuated Puchevillers on 2 July 1916?


Recommended Posts

More than 500 casualties were evacuated from No. 3 Casualty Clearing Station at Puchevillers on 2 July 1916. To save me the work of ploughing through every diary in the hope of determining the answer, does any one know which Ambulance Trains departed that day?

Well, Chris, 10 AT took 440 but that was on 3 July.


And 15 AT took 300 but that was also 3 July.


Ah! 31 AT took 275 on 2 July, going to Etaples.


Don't mind me, talk amongst yourselves ... :lol:

Yes to 31 AT, departed 09.15 hrs but I'm seeing 62 officers sick, 244 wounded ORs and 31 sick ORs = 337.


Base diary says they arrived with 375.


All evacuations by AT, barge and convoy are recorded in WO447/5-9. That's July-Dec 1916.


But, NB those for Oct 1916 are muddled with 5th Army DMS appendices WO532/2.


The tables aren't perfect, I checked the lists to 5th July and compared them to base and AT diaries. There are discrepancies in AT numbers and destinations. About 10 discrepancies of 90 journeys.
