Royal Army Medical Corps - PoW Other Ranks 1914


There are 365 men in this list of Royal Army Medical Corps soldiers captured on or before the 25th December 1914. The names appear on a nine-page typed list sent in by the officer in charge of records, RAMC, to Sir Ernest Goodhart in February 1919. These days, that list is field at the Imperial War Museum, catalogue reference, B.O.2 1/127.

The vast majority of the medical index cards for these men DO NOT note that they were prisoners of war and so, apart from the difficult-to-search ICRC PoW database, this may be the first time that this list has been published; quite a nice bonus for medal collectors, I would have thought. A lot of the men served with 4th Field Ambulance and my notations below are simply as a result of looking at medal index cards for some of these men. Again, most of theese MICs note the Field Ambulance served with.

Additional information contained on this typed list includes home addresses for the majority of the men, plus additional notes for some of them. I will be happy to sell copies of this list for £20. Drop me a line if interested.
