What a great service was provided during this terrible battle !! Heroic, beyond all measure.
I am trying to learn more about the 2/2 London Field Ambulance during the SECOND Battle of the Somme. My father, and American doctor, was evacuated by them to the Canadian C.C.S. at Valenciennes, France in Nov. 1918.

Can you tell me what archives might have this information?

My father James Wright was a stretcher bearer in 48th Field Ambulance ADS RAMC,at the 1st battle of Arras April 1917.I inherited from him two photographs of the ADS at that time and I can confirm that the scene is exactly as described in note 12 above.The only thing missing is the notice,none being necessary!
