Thread: US Hospitals in the UK (AAF Use)

    My girlfriend and I got permission from the estate manager to explore the old camp at Stowell Park. Amazing day even though we had time to cover the southern half of the site.

    We found one remaining "Nissen" hut which still partly had it's interior wall lining and fixtures and lots of period detritus. Pretty much every building base was there and we were able to identify every building from the 1950s photos.

    Highlight of the day? My girfriend found a 1943 dated US GI dogtag lying in the dirt next to one of the old ward buildings and we were able to clean it up. A quick bit of research shows that the GI in question was still around in 1995 in California and we're trying to get in touch with him via the American Legion.

    Pics when we get home and can process them all.

    There was a US hospital in the park at Longleat House near Warminster but I cannot find any information on it - can anyone help?

    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.

    I really don't have a name unfortunately, just area and US hospital, site looks pretty temporary with Nissens and tents.

    This site makes reference to Glangwili being built on the site of the American hospital.

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

    Hi! The one in Longleats grounds was the 216th general hospital, and I am trying to find out more about it if anybody can help.
