    Below please find a link to a photo of the 11th Fld Amb taken in Tunis in May 1943. I found this amongst my father's collection of WW2 stuff and thought it might be of interest to others researching the same campaign.

    11th Fld Amb Tunis May 1943 | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

    I put the image onto Flickr because the original photograph is very small and needed to be scanned at high resolution. BTW I have tried to put the link directly into the "upload a file from a URL" but keep getting an "invalid file" response?

    At least the photo gives me a handle on the actual number (41 in the photo) of chaps in the 11th Fld Amb - I had no idea before. I thought it would have been much smaller somehow, don't know why really! I guess I imagined just a few brave souls darting out dodging muck and bullets to render help to the injured.

    I have just put another photo on Flickr. Link:

    11th Fld Amb Bournemouth 1940 | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

    This shows the same 11th Fld Amb unit but taken 3 years earlier in Bournemouth (1940), presumably at a training camp. Does anyone have any information about where that might have been exactly? I notice that there are 49 chaps in the photo here, so if you take away the 2 officers in the front, that leaves 47. Sadly there were only 41 in the photo taken at Tunis.

    Go to the image on Flikr. Select view all sizes from the menu. Select large.

    Right click on the image and copy. Come back to the thread and left click and paste.:)
