Hi All,

I'm chasing up a: 229 Pte. Albert Victor Whitfield, RAMC/5AT. I have his Medal Roll details, which does not show the Theatre of War but does show he entered that Theatre 15 Aug 1914, which would lead me to thinking he was in the TF prior to the outbreak of War, also his Regt Number seems to suggest the same.

Has anyone any ideas on that, also can any one enlighting me on the 5AT after the Royal Army Medical Corps, In fact any information would be gratefully received.

a clasp was awarded so must have been France / Belgium

I take it you have the ancestry copy ?

No 5 Ambulance Train.

Actually, given the very early date of arrival in France I would doubt that Albert was a Territorial.

Hi Chris,

thank you for your "Ambulance Train". I assume I can get more information from the "Long Long Trail" also if his Regt Number was no a TF then how about a very early RAMC Number?

P.S.

Sorry to hear you are leaving, may I add my thanks to you for all the hard work you have put in to make this site a resounding success.

Hello Barry,

The war diary for 5 Ambulance Train is held at the National Archives under the reference WO 95/4131

The dates covered are Sept 1914 to Oct 1919.
