Admiralty and predecessors: Office of the Director General of the Medical Department of the Navy and predecessors: Medical Journals
A selection of journals returned to the bodies responsible for superintending naval medical services by the surgeons of HM ships, some hospitals, naval brigades and shore parties. There are also journals from convict ships and emigrant ships, for which naval surgeons were provided. The journals contain an account of the treatment of medical and surgical cases, and usually a copy of the daily sick list, statistical abstracts of the incidence of diseases, and general comments on the health and activities of the ship's company.
PLEASE NOTE: A selection of records within this series are available to download free of charge as part of the Digital Microfilm project.
Journals from convict ships are continued in MT 32
Fleet Temporary Memorandum 215 of 1990 terminated the requirement for ships' medical officers to compile journals.
