Forces War Records

Forces War Records has reached a new milestone in its latest transcription project. Launching with 30,000 records in November, the website has confirmed it has since uploaded a further 20,000 records to its Military Hospitals Admissions and Discharge Registers collection. The record set offers details of soldiers who received medical treatment on the front line during the First World War.
Each entry for a patient treated by the field ambulance includes:
  • Name
  • Rank
  • Regiment and sub unit
  • Age and completed years of service
  • Completed months with field force
  • Date of admission
  • Date of discharge
  • Injury / Illness
  • Any additional observations by medical practioners
  • Plus details of movement back to the front or to another hospital, or in some cases the soldier's death
