While spending some more time researching my Grandad's war service I found this press release from one month ago. Caulfield Hospital is commemorating it's use as an army hospital during The Great War.

My Grandad was treated here, in 1919, after being injured by a horse at Messines Ridge, the previous year.

Thanks for the article, but it may give a false impression that Caulfield "repat", as we knew it, was WW1 specific.

It was in full swing during the forties as this pic shows
