From the late Ruth Abbott's collection.
Mr. William Edward Abbott
Note: I have tried to transcribe all names but all handwriting is sometimes difficult to read - no names have been
confirmed or cross referenced from other sources. Possibly some of the RAMC were patients rather than staff. KC

Ruth Abbott was proud of her grandfather’s RAMC service
and kept his autograph book and covered it, and wrote this.

William Edward Abbott served in WWI with the RAMC at Woodcote Park Hospital, Epsom, and he kept this autograph book. The first entry was in May 1917 by Canadian Pte W Franklin of the 43rd Canadians :
