Hello, I have been researching my Great Grandfather's early life and came across this forum post and wonder if you, or some of your fellow forum members, might be able to help me. The only record I have of Lance Sergeant W H Turner's military service, is his demobbing paper from Woolwich Barracks in 1901. I am struggling to find any info on what he did during his 10 years in the RAMC. I basically don't know where to look. I have the seen the posts here, which you have contributed to, referencing some of his movements, but don't know where this information comes from. I followed the instructions to the QSA and found a reference that may be him but it's not totally certain and it only gives a name, nothing else, so not really that helpful. Any advice would be really appreciated
