Dr. James A. Chisholm, Reverend at Mwenzo Mission, Northern Rhodesia 1914

 

The following photos were taken summer 2016 in the Mwenzo mission archive near Nakonde / Zambia.

Did Dr. James A. Chisholm possessed a military rank? Shown on the second photo on his right forearm.

J. A. Chisholm is shown as a Captain in the Northern Rhodesia Medical Corps on the 1914/1915 Star Medal Roll, the roll shows an entry date into (an unspecified) theatre of operations of 1st October 1914.

On the same page of the Medal Roll is an entry for Nursing Sister Mrs. Kate M. Chisholm, same entry date into theatre, his wife perhaps?

 

The inverted chevrons on his lower right arm are not indication of rank but are overseas service chevrons denoting each years service.

I try to summarize this and other issues along the BNR / GEA border through 1914-1918 here:
