Remembered Today:

Major James McWilliam Taylor Canadian Army Medical Corps


Recommended Posts

Greetings from an Old Outlaw (again)

Another problem which has me stumped . I have a 1914-15 Star War and Victory group to Major James Mc William Taylor

Canadian Army Medical Corps . I can find very little about him so I am asking for help. What I do know is that he 

enlisted in the C.E.F. on 31 March 1915 and was seconded to the R.A.M.C . He landed in Salonika 4th Jan 1916 .

He saw service in Britain and was discharged on 13th July 1919 in Britain .He is said to have died in Birmingham in 1970.

Not a lot  really. Were there Medal Index cards and medal rolls for Canadian troops ? as I cannot find his .

So if anyone can give me any more information about Major Taylor I will be most grateful.

He appears in the Brtish Medical Register for 1947 working in  City Hospital, Northfield , Birmingham.
I haven't checked other registers.

It says he qualifed for the London Conjoint degree (MRCS, LRCP) in 1920, which is when he was first registered with the GMC.
Not sure why his Canadian medical degree wasn't enough???
