Description Army Veterinary Corps


"Re My Dad and WW1 as far as I know he was in the Army Veterinary Corp for there was teasing about having won a VC!!!! Certainly was in N Africa but where else I have no idea. Sounds like looking after health of the animals and even just getting them fed and watered was quite a problem. and treating injuries another field plus disposing of them." ref 130814EJL
