Discussion in 'RAMC' started by Katfort, Aug 27, 2012.
Has any one got any information on 11FDS especially from Jan 1945?
Thank you ever so much.
Do you have any other info? Where does your info come from??
Do you have letters or photos that show that unit name?
The more info you can provide up front, the more chance of receiving some concrete help.
What does FDS stand for? (or is that what you need to know??)
cheers & good luck
I thought FDS was Field Dressing Station.
There was an 11 FDS in First Canadian Army.
Nos. 9, 10 & 11 Field Dressing Stations, RCAMC

Sorry, I should have been more specific- 11 Field Dressing Station was I think part of the British 3rd Infantry Division. I just wondered what was their role after January 1945? If anyone had any information about 11 FDS?
My grandfather was with 11 FDS and never mentioned the period when they went into Germany as he was particulary shocked- could 11 FDS have been part of the liberation of a concentration camp (other than Sandbostel)?
Thanks for your help.
My father served in the 10th Field Dressing Station of the 3rd Infantry Division.
From the only conversation I ever had with him on the topic, he believes he landed on Sword Beach on D-day +4 and then made his way from there east through Normandy and into Belgium, where he ended the war.
He was then deployed from there, via Toulon, to Palestine.
Hope that's of some help.
Understand a very old thread however here goes, 11 Field Dressing Station RAMC was 3rd Infantry Division however remained in Germany when the division moved to UK 10 Sep 45 and was under admin command 34 Armd Bde by 23 Oct 45, stationed in Mettingen north-west of Osnabrück, their disbandment order was received 7 Jan 46.
Their war diary is available at the National Archives here: 11 F.D.S. | The National Archives
I see this is a very old post, but I’ve just joined! My father was a Sergeant in 11FDS! He joined up in September 1939 I believe, and was demobbed either December 1945, or January 1946. I have a couple of photos I believe, showing him with some of the other men.
