    Hi guys.
    My Great Uncle was an ambulance driver in France in the Great war. I haven't been able to find out anything about him so, maybe you can help me.
    Does anyone know if a Medic and ambulance driver performed the same functions, with the same training or, were they Union members..lol ,just doing their jobs of either driving the ambulance or, just being a medic? Thanks.

    Dont know if this is helpful or not but this may be something like the kind of vehicle your great uncle was driving. This is a postcard in my collection, I find the message on the back particularly poignant. I would imagine ambulance drivers concentrated mainly on driving rather than giving medical aid, unless in extreme circumstances. Cheers.

    There is a wealth of info available about the Medical Corp in WWI. If you have any specifics about your great uncle and have something to work with, I may be able to help somewhat.

    Thank you John. I have recently found out that he was a Cpl. in the 104th ambulance Co., 26th "Yankee" division. His name was George Joseph Brown from Rhode Island.
