    This sub-fonds contains letters and papers relating to the work done by Carless during the First World War. Carless separated most of these items out into a separate envelope. The letters and papers date from 1908 to 1921, and include letters concerning his position, patients he has treated, the loss of his son, and the termination of his position as consulting surgeon with the Eastern Command. The papers include a folk song to be sung at a Christmas Concert in 1916, and Carless’s permits and food allowances for the Dover Garrison in 1918. A separate envelope included a letter, dated May 1921, from Queen Alexandra thanking him for service during the Great War. This envelope also contained a letter from the Red Cross concerning a War Medal. The sub-fonds also contains a menu and seating plan for a Dinner held in appreciation of the services of the Royal Army Medical Department, in June 1920.
