  1. Hi Guys,

    Am doing a bit of research and was wondering if anyone can tell me which RAMC units deployed to Palestine during the arab revolt 1936-39. I know there was a hospital in Gaza (BMH Gaza), but am curious to know whether any field ambulances or the like where ever sent. I assume i`m right in thinking that in those days, ever infantry regiment would have had medics attached to them, this would account for the GSMs with bar Palestine to the RAMC. But I`d very much like to know whether any RAMC units were deployed and is there a roll of honour for the RAMC during this period?

    I was shocked to see the loses the RAMC suffered in the period 1945-48 in Palestine.
  2. Many thanks Para-medic, didn`t think about asking Keogh have sent them an email.
