Does anyone know anything of 28th General Hospital please?  I believe my Grandfather Henry Howells of infantry Welsh Borderers was a patient there approximately 1917-1918

In issue 15 of The New Mosquito, April 2007, there is an article on ‘Great Aunt Clara’ by Gillian Hall, which states:  “She arrived in Salonika on 15 December 1915 and, from a surviving postcard dated April 1916, was with the 28th General Hospital, which appears to have been a tented hospital on the Monastir Road.

 

It continues:” [Can any reader give any more information, including precise location, please? Answers c/o The Editor].

There is a description  in the following link, the section about hospitals starting on  page 86 of Volume IV Medical Services General History from the series History of the Great War based on Official Documents.
