Ali Blake Posted 31 January , 2022 Share Posted 31 January , 2022 I have been researching a family tree line and came across info that a great grandfather was a Private in the AVC when he got married in 1907. I have had a look on the usual sites and the only possibility I can find is this John Hills. Would I be right in presuming this would be him as he was a regualr soldier before the outbreak of WW1? I have found 2 AVC Medal Rolls which include his name and a general medal card and one for the award of the MSM in 1918. This also states that he was serving with No12 vet Hospital. I have drawn a blank so far as to where this hospital was located and if it was attached to a specific Brigade/Division so that I can get the relevant War Diary. If I do have the right man, given that he enlisted in the early 00s, is there anywhere where I might find his enlistment records? I'm aware that most WW1 records didn't survive. Also, any information on No12 Vet Hospital would also be very much appreciated. Many thanks Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
