Pete Keane -I have the 54 Field Ambulance diaries for 1945 if you don't already have them. My grandfather was an R.A.M.C Captain in the 54 Field Ambulance but he died on February 7th, 1944 in the Admin Box in Burma. Interestingly, on his service record I found a bit about the Lancs Regt - not sure what the letters are just before that - Looks like "YTBS Lancs Regt" attd for duty as Medical Officer. So when I was poking around - I too found Manny's website, and wondered if Manny had met my grandfather while he was in the hospital in Secunderabad. The timing looks right. Anyway, I don't know much about the Lancs yet. I am also looking for the apparently missing 1944 54 Ambulance Unit diaries if anyone should ever come across them misfiled or otherwise.
