Hello the Forum.

I am going through the paper work of a soldier I have researched, he died of wounds received on the 21st or 22nd of May 1915, his paperwork mentions he was treated by the 6th London Field Ambulance, I am hoping that some one on the Forum may know of this units location on the dates mentioned. Thanks in advance.

Cheers Rob.

Part of the 2nd London Divisin (later 47th); the divisional history says they were in the Festubert area at the time.

They had one ADS near Festubert and one at Le Touret. The Headquarters and hospital (MDS) was established at a school in Rue Michelet, Bethume from the 26th April 1915, accommodation for 300 patients. On the 22nd May the hospital was transferred, owing to constant shelling, to the Ecole Maternelle in the Rue Pasteur, near the town prison.
