Hi,

Once more, working my way through service records, I've come up against the completely illegible at a crucial point:

A wounded soldier, going from 18th General Hopsital at Camiers in May 1917 to Etaples is noted down as first going to 66 ***** . Dep, then ending up in 24th General Hospital at Etaples, where he remained until July before going to England.

Does anyone know what 66 ????? . Dep was at Etaples?

(some kind of Depot for wounded?)

with thanks

Hi Promenade,

The convalescent depot sounds promising asI think that the regiment he came through would have used the 34 IBD, (did the Infantry base Depots go up to 66?)

Was there an official designation of Convalescence depots - and if so, do you know what records may have survived??

many thanks for your response
