Experiences of the Great War

Back to Civvy Street

Because of his injury, George Ramage was eventually discharged from the army on 30 August 1916 and returned to civilian life — 'Civvy Street'.

Ramage was one of the lucky ones. He may have had to spend the rest of his life with an artificial arm, but he had survived the horrors of the First World War and was able to resume his career as a teacher.

We know little about his later years, which culminated in his death, in Edinburgh, on 4 March 1934 at the age of 51.
