15th Australian Field Ambulance
« on: Tuesday 18 August 20 05:25 BST (UK) »
Would anyone know a website where I could find a potted history of the above unit.  I used to be able to find these on the Australian War Memorial site but since it was updated I have problems finding anything on it.
I have googled it but unable to find just what I'm looking for.
Thanks

Thanks, I did see these.  The AWM used to have potted histories of battalions etc but with the new site they seem to have replaced them with just basic information on the units.
I do appreciate your time.

A tree commemorates those who served with the 15th Field Ambulance during World War One.
The 15th Field Ambulance was the Field Ambulance Company that nominally supported the 15th Brigade of the Fifth Division, comprised of the 57th, 58th 59th and 60th Battalions, all from Victoria.  Field Ambulances were under command of the Division HQ rather than the supported Brigade.

The 15th Field Ambulance had the initial care of my Grandfather in 1917 when he was wounded on the Western Front.

Yes, sometimes change broadens the scope of the information provided, but there's not too many living now who can recall first hand accounts shared re WWI, so it is likely that the broadening of the info on the AWM website is to keep the general public aware of WWI, but also to become aware of conflicts and peacetime operations involving all the members of the Australian Defence Forces.

Thanks majm, I'll be able to put something together from all those sites.  Really appreciate your efforts on my behalf.
