    Hello, I hope you can help me find details and examples of war diaries and history of members of the 140 Field Ambulance RAMC.

    I am interested in from 1937-1945.
    Any information, photos, war diaries, war records of members, links to websites etc.

    I am trying to understand what a gentlemen Dr. H. B. Lee (Lt. Col) serial 63105 would have experienced during his tour of duty. He was a field surgeon that seems to have been at D-Day, France, Germany, Italy, and North Africa.

    Thank you for your help.

    Is there a way to learn how the 140 Field Ambulance landed on D-Day (ship or airborne) and what beach?

    I suppose no one has the War Diaries for the 140?

    I sense some urgency in your request. The National Archives at Kew have them. Perhaps give them a call to order a copy.

    Hello MarkN, I thank you for your concern and help. I am unfortunately not related in anyway to H. B. Lee. I am also concerned that I wouldn't get a reply for up to a year from what I understand of the current situation. I am in the United States. I came across some of Dr Lee's personal possessions and started checking into who is he and discovered that he has an interesting history that I hope to personally preserve like all of you historian/hobbyists. I know a bit about his post war life where he continued to be a prominent surgent for St. Bartholemew in London.

    Now I am trying to learn about his history during WW2 which is much more difficult since I am not a close relative of his and I do not have a copy of his death certificate. All I have are his obituaries from 1985.
