Can any member identify the hospital in the photograph, there is a church to the left hand side of the hospital. The nurse who worked at this hospital served at the 14th General Hospital, Wimereux, 12th Stationary Hospital and 58th CCS. I believe it is possibly Wimereux but can anyone identify it for certain.

It's definitely not No.14 General, which was housed in the Hotel Splendide, the adjacent Casino at Wimereux, with huts added later - photo on this page:

No 12 Stationary was at Rouen and St Pol.

Check out anything you can find on the web on No.8 General Hospital, Rouen (at Bois Guillaume). I can see that there might have been a short spell there, and although the buildings have changed a great deal, could this be possible?

I would say the building in the link from #6 above is the same as that in the OP.

Look at the small windows just below the eaves, and the pointed roof at the right hand side of each photo.

Thanks for the input, and I must agree that the photographs I listed appear to be the Number 6 (8) Hospital at Boisguillaume.

Ignore the 'No.6' reference - No.6 General Hospital was in Rouen, but was a hutted and tented hospital on the Racecourse where most of the hospitals were situated. It was just No.8 General and No.2 British Red Cross Hospital that were in buildings in the town. So it does look as though the photo was No.8 General and that ties in with the postings of the nurse who was there early in the war - probably soon after she arrived in October 1914.

Thanks for the information, I will pass this on to the family of the nurse who worked there.
