    Excellent graphics.

    Anything similar with the White Court (Braintree) hospital on?

    Not as yet, but I do have a series of wartime oblique aerial photos of White Court Hospital taken by the USAAF somewhere on the hard drive.
    I'll see if I can find them.

    TTFN,

    Main units:
    231st Station Hospital, US Army, to March 1944.
    65th General Hospital, US Army, from February 1944.

    All my children were born at Odstock Hospital ex USAAF, now Salisbury Gen. and the youngest is 26 now. My poor dad was in the word two up from where Rebecca was born. Many years later and the thought that she had been born thier helped him a lot. Poor Dad.

    Also I have 106th US General Hospital Kingston Lacy House, Wimborne, Dorset on my website.

    cant tell you much about the hospital but a friend of mine,a tree surgeon, uses the upper part of the site,nearest the road,as a wood yard,ive been in there several times and there's practically nothing left except one building (used to house his tractor) and obviously lots and lots of building bases,all running in tiers down the bank through the woods

    Things you find out. My youngest sisters first husband was a marine stationed at Norton Manor near Taunton, its 40 Commando who are based there not special forces. And their first married quarter was at Houndstone. As for Oddstock hospital, did the NHS have to buy it from the Americans?
