Description: Medal index cards were created by the Army Medal Office towards the end of the First World War. They record the medals that men and women who served in the First World War were entitled to claim.
This database on FMP website contains staff (including doctors, nurses, orderlies, ambulance drivers etc) who served with Scottish Women's Hospital.
Contains references to 1,575 women (and men) who were stationed in continental Europe during WWI. Many were in France or Corsica; however, a significant number were based in Serbia, from which some accompanied the Serb government, army and civilian refugees on their long retreat across the snow-covered Albanian mountains to evacuation to Corfu.
The entries give title, position, station, dates of service and occasionally extra notes. If day of month was not given, the first is used. The information is taken from a source at London's Imperial war Museum.
