I'm not certain - does the LLT offer any advice?

I could be wrong but I thought a Convalescent Depot is where a man went after he was discharged from hospital (so frees up a bed) but is not quite fit enough/recovered enough to go back in the line/do his normal duties and hence has to convalesce first. On the other hand a CRS was a place a man went direct from the front line/his normal duties because he literally needed a rest - due to minor sickness/wounds, he was worn out etc. He might get worse and if so, off he went to a Base Hospital. But most in a CRS returned to duty after a few days.

So I think Convalescent Depots were near Base Hospitals whereas CRS were closer to the Front Line - in the Corps rear area and run by the Corps.

As I say, this is just a gut feel - I'll be happy to learn more if wrong.
