Remembered Today:


No. 5 Stationary Hospital location.

Recommended Posts



i am just trying to do a bit of amateur detective work.

No 5 STATIONARY hospital.


I am getting conflicting results on its location.


I know at the early stages of war until Dec 1914 it was at Le Mans.


Then it seems to be in two places at once.


I Thought it was based at Dieppe going by records and Mr Google from Jan 1915 until 1920, but it also seems to be at Abbeville according to some google hits.


There seems to be a section A and a section B to No 5 stationary hospital.


it is a nuisance to clarify as there is a No 5 general hospital that people seem to confuse and also the Canadians had a No 5 as well to add to the mix.


Anyway could anyone confirm if it was split during the war from 1915 to 1920 to two locations or was it just Dieppe.


Just trying to research a RAMC chap.
