I have done some research and he was an Ambulance Driver in the Australian Ambulance Corps. The Australian Voluntary Hospital was a military hospital staffed by Australian expatriates in England that served on the Western Front between 1914 and 1916. For much of this time it was the only Australian presence on the Western Front. Later transferred to the Royal Air Force (RAF) 01/04/1918. I have added some information about the hospital below. MORE INFORMATION england & Wales, National Probate Calendar (Index of Wills and Administrations): Farquhar Albert of Woodnesborough Grange Sandwich Kent died 10 November 1935. Confirmation of Florence Muriel Lambe or Farquhar widow Mowbray Gore Farquhar D. Colonel Stuart Saint John Farquhar admiral and John Charles Peveril Meggs Davis. Sealed London 25 May. — ABERDEEN – MARRIAGE OF MISS NICOL OF MURTLE – Miss Alice Jane Nicol, eldest daughter of the late Mr Alex Nicol of Murtle, shipowner, and sometime Provost of Aberdeen, was married on Thursday at St Andrew’s church, Aberdeen by the Rev J M Danson, to Albert Farquhar, fifth son of Admiral Sir Arthur Farquhar. When the First World War broke out in August 1914, Lady (Rachel) Dudley, the wife of the former Governor general of Australia the Lord Dudley, decided to create a hospital from Australian doctors and nurses who were in the United Kingdom. There were relatively large numbers of these; while doctors and nurses could be trained in Australia, advanced qualifications still required a trip overseas. Please read all carefully.

For much of this time it was the only Australian presence on the Western Front. Later transferred to the Royal Air Force (RAF) 01/04/1918. I have added some information about the hospital below. When the First World War. Broke out in August 1914, Lady (Rachel) Dudley, the wife of the former Governor-General of Australia. Decided to create a hospital from Australian doctors and nurses who were in the United Kingdom. There were relatively large numbers of these; while doctors and nurses could be trained in Australia, advanced qualifications still required a trip overseas. Lady Dudley discussed her proposal with King George V. And then with the Secretary of State for War. And the British Army’s Director General Army Medical Services. Who authorised the hospital. The hospital was formally offered to the British government by the Australian High Commissioner to the United Kingdom. On 15 August 1914. Volunteers responded to advertisements that Lady Dudley placed in English newspapers on 17 August 1914. Women doctors were not accepted, but women nurses were welcomed. The Australian Voluntary Hospital was commanded by Lieutenant Colonel William L’Estrange Eames. An officer in the Australian Army Medical Corps. Who had served in the Second Boer War. And was holidaying in England with his family at the time. He was unable to join the Australian Imperial Force. (AIF), which was not accepting enlistments outside of Australia. He was granted the temporary rank of lieutenant colonel. In the Royal Army Medical Corps. Ida Greaves, from Royal Newcastle Hospital. The hospital soon reached a strength of 120 staff, of whom 36 were nurses. The Australian Voluntary Hospital assembled its personnel and equipment at a camp established on the grounds of the Ranelagh Club. Which had been loaned for the purpose. It departed for France on 29 August 1914 on Lord Dunraven. S yacht “Greta”, which had been accepted by the Admiralty. As a transport for medical units. And moved to Le Havre. Owing to the German advance, the hospital was evacuated to St Nazaire. On 2 September, and reopened there 5 September. The 100-bed hospital was set up in a park under canvas, with a school and house close by rented for various facilities. It began receiving casualties from the retreat from Mons. On 26 October 1914, the Australian Voluntary Hospital moved to Wimereux. Where it established a 200-bed hospital. The hospital was well equipped, with motor ambulances donated by organisations in Australia, a pathology laboratory and the only X-ray unit in the area. A day after it opened on 29 October, it began receiving patients from the First Battle of Ypres. Much of the unit’s tents which accommodated the male personnel of the hospital were lost in a blizzard on 11 November 1914, and the men moved to the Golf club house of the Hôtel du Golf et Cosmopolite in Wimereux, which was eventually leased by the hospital, and became its officers’ mess. For a time, the Australian Voluntary Hospital was the only Australian presence on the Western Front. But in April 1916, Australian Army units began arriving from the Middle East in large numbers. The Australian Voluntary Hospital’s site in Wimereux was taken over by No. 3 Australian General Hospital, AIF in June 1916. The Australian Voluntary Hospital was then absorbed into the British Army. With Eames remaining in command. By 1 May 1919, the hospital had treated 73,868 patients.
