    Can anyone explain why VD cases have a seperate ward?

    It could be because, certainly in the US Army during WWII, VD was regarded as a self-inflicted injury and could lead to a Court Martial and Dishonorable Discharge.
    Having said that, as the majority of EMS Hospitals for civilian, British or American use were built a detached VD wing as standard it's quite possible it's a holdover from the pre-war practice of treating pox patients in an isolation clinic.

    A chap I used to work for was on National Service in Malaya and he was proud of the fact that his Regiment had a higher VD rate than the Australians. Apologies to any Australians but I gather it was a boast of theirs (at the time)!

    He never met Hywel Bennett though.

    My first job was with The Ministry Of Agriculture Fisheries and Food in Southgate Street Bury St Edmunds in 1965 and was near the roundabout as you come in, on the left. It was comprised of rows of white huts and had previously been a US Military Hospital. It is no longer there apart from the hedge outside and still house MAFF and the Industrial Tribunal Office and court

    1940's aerial of the site, evidently prior to the huts being built:
