    Hi All,

    With 75th Anniversary of V.E. Day fast approaching, I was wondering if anyone knew what and where 194 Field Ambulance were on 8th May 1945?

    I have the History of the 15th Scottish Division, of which the 194 were part, but it does not mention 194 specifically, just that "VE day found the Division just north of the Hamburg-Lubeck Autobahn with the role of protecting the left flank of the 11th Armoured Division."

    Sadly the War Diary 194 Field Ambulance is not digitalized.

    Any info gratefully received!
