1918 British War and Victory Medals. CAPT. A.G. CARMENT.  (R.A.M.C.)  As a Surgeon, Merchant Navy Killed aged 66, 8.5.1941 when the German Raider "PINGUIN" who had sunk 17 merchant ships including Clan Buchanan on 28.4.1941 & taken off survivors as P.O.W.'s was sunk by H.M.S. Cornwall 8.5.1941.

Andrew Gray Carment was born in India in 1873. He received his medical training at the University of Edinburgh, gaining a M.B., C.M. in 1896, B.Sc. in 1909, and M.D. in 1911. He was D.P.H., R.C.P.S. Edinburgh and R.F.P.S. Glasgow, 1920. During the Great War he was appointed a Temporary Lieutenant, R.A.M.C., October 1916 and Temporary Captain, October 1917. Served in East Africa, Malta, Macedonia and North Russia (August-October 1918). In the 1924 Medical Register his address is given as Tulagi on the British Solomon Island Protectorate. His M.I.C. confirms pair only but notes claimed 1914 Star 'ineligible' & also 'ineligible' for 1914-15 Star states "Capt. Carment did not appear to have served on the establishment of a unit of the British Ex. Force in E(ast) Af(rica) during the qualifing period". Presumably Carment was claiming his 1914 Star due to the collectors notes which say P.O.W. German East Africa Aug. 1914 of which I have been unable to confirm but as the M.O.D. says "not on a unit of the British Ex. Force" which doesn't mean to say he wasn't !! Just not in the right unit/place at the right time to qualify. Copy M.I.C., C.W.G.C., Medical Directory (1923) Pinguin/Cornwall action detail. E.F. £365
