|TNA has made accessible over 1,000Royal Navy Medical Officer Journals (ADM101 series).
ADM 101 consists of journals and diaries compiled by Royal Navy Surgeons and Assistant Surgeons who served in the period 1793 to 1880.
The records can be easily searched by the name of the Medical Officer, the patient the ship or even by disease or ailment.
|Medical officers serving in the Royal Navy were required to submit detailed records of the health, treatment and survival rates of their charges. This has provided us with journals which exhibit a completeness, consistency and coherence unlikely to exist elsewhere for this period. |
