Remembered Today:

69th Field Ambulance


Recommended Posts

I have just found out that my great-grandfather Sgt Harry Craddock of the 13th DLI died of wounds at the 69th Field Ambulance on 20/09/17.

Knowing this information is there a way I can find out more information about how he died etc?

ps I have already managed to look at war diaries, books, War Graves Comm etc.

What I was wondering if I could access information recorded by the 69th FA??

Thanks for any pointers.

When you say you've looked at War Diaries does that mean the 69th Field Ambulance as well?

If not then they too have War Diaries under the references:

WO95/2179 - 69 Field Ambulance 1915 Aug. - 1917 Oct.

WO95/4234 - 69 Field Ambulance 1917 Nov. - 1919 Mar.

However, having never consulted a Field Ambulance War Diary I've no idea what information they recorded.

Hope this helps

Thanks Steve,

As you might have guessed I meant the war diaries of the 13th for the period around the 20th Sept.

I did not think about the war dairies of the 69th FA, I wonder if anyone knows whether they would contain useful information about wounded soldiers??
