World War One British Medical Army Corps – Finding Information
The records relating to the World War One British Medical Army Corps are believed to have been destroyed during the 1930’s. It was assumed that they would never have been required again. How wrong is that assumption now?!?!
The vital piece of information usually needed is the medical unit(s) he served with.
Information about the promotions and appointments of officers can be found in:
1) The Monthly Army Lists – held in the library at the National Archive but other libraries maybe in a position to help, example here is the Scottish Library
2) The London Gazette. The London Gazette also printed information about honours and awards.
Did you have family serve in the Medical Corps? Tell us about them, we would love to hear all about it, down below in the comments box:
