Our collection of First World War Soldiers' Medical Records comprises The National Archives’ series, MH106, War Office: First World War Representative Medical Records of Servicemen. Only a sample of the original documents was retained and these records are a representative selection of the full collection of medical records created during the war. The records include admissions and discharge records from hospitals, field ambulances, and casualty clearing stations. You will also find records from Queen Alexandra’s Military Hospital before the First World War, dating from 1910. A full list of the hospitals and medical facilities represented in the records can be found at the end of the search page. 

The medical records were collected by the Medical Research Committee and then given over to the British Museum. In 1931 they were used for statistical research when Thomas John Mitchell and G M Smith published "Medical services: Casualties and medical statistics of the Great War from the data gathered from these medical records."
