R.A.M.C?
« on: Thursday 08 March 18 20:58 GMT (UK) »
In 1921 my granddad's occupation is given on his son's birth certificate as "Private 14 R.A.M.C"  Does anyone have any idea what this means?  He had been in the Royal Artillery during the war so could it be Royal Artillery Medical Corps as I do know that he returned to France after the war for clearance of the battlefields. 

Any help would be much appreciated.
