    These are truly excellent overlays. Its a cheeky "ask" but do you have one for Tyntesfield by any chance?

    Thank you again for this excellent research

    Does anyone here know of a US army hospital, which was near or in Carmarthen? I've come across some US obliques which suggest as such.

    Thanks Paul and Ian, the site of the original US hospital is definitely at, and built over by the current Glangwili hospital.

    Have you seen any reference to the WW2 hospital at Ross on Wye?

    Thanks Ian
