Leeds University, Liddle Collection, LIDDLE/WW1/WF/REC/01/L5: brief notes of events 1916-1918 by Doctor R Lawson, Royal Army Medical Corps, UK. Catalogue entry shows that he served with these units:

Arthur L. Linfoot
Arthur Lindsay Linfoot kept a diary for every day from 1 January 1914 to 31 December 1918. The diary is being blogged on the centenary of each entry at The Diary of Arthur L. Linfoot. The about page of the blog states that Arthur volunteered for the RAMC in 1915, and his medal card confirms that he was a private in this corps. We don't yet know which unit he was in because the diary hasn't got that far and his official service record hasn't survived.

Unit war diaries
None. Administrative organisations did not keep war diaries because they had no operational role.
See descendant unit pages for their war diaries.
