This story was shared at the Somerville Great War Roadshow at Somerville College, 15 Nov 2014. My great grandfather, James Freeman Massey, joined the Royal Army Medical Corps May in 1915; he had been a college servant (the attestation does not say which college) and he said he was 48 years and 10 months at the time, although according to his birth certificate he would have been 53, almost 54. During the war, he worked as an orderly at the Somerville Section, 3rd Southern General Hospital in Oxford, which was the hospital for wounded officers in Somerville College. He was discharged in September 1917.
