1st Scottish General Hospital

The 1st Scottish General Hospital was situated at Aberdeen and during WW1 had capacity for 62 officer beds and 1297 Other Rank beds.

My data for Royal Army Medical Corps personnel serving at the hospital is thin and I would welcome additional details to help fill some of the gaps.

844 joined on 8th June 1909
1267 joined on 26th March 1912
1368 joined on 23rd April 1913
1469 joined on 13th January 1914
1471 joined on 8th February 1915
1476 joined on 11th March 1915
1487 joined on 15th April 1915

Eddie, there's a pension record in WO 97 (now accessible via findmypast.co.uk) for a man who fits this description. He served with the 100th Regt of Foot and was discharged in 1879 as a result of sickness picked up at Jullundur in India. This man, according to his papers, was born in Soran, Catran, Ayrshire around July 1851. He was discharged from the Royal Hospital, Netley in June 1879 aged 27 years and 11 months.

I will follow up.

Paul, not of relevance to this topic but I have picked up a few Regular RAMC enlistment dates, which I thought might be of more general use:

6580 Arthur Sydney Hellyer, who enlisted for his "three and nine" at Stratford, in London, on 3 August 1912 and served with 11th General Hospital as part of the BEF
6584 Arthur Daniel Gwilt, a short service enlistment at Wolverhampton on 6 August 1912 who served with 4th Field Ambulance
6585 Frederick Harold Forman who enlisted for a Long Service Attestation (12 years) at Aldershot, aged 14, on 7 August 1912
