Hi,

I'm seeking for a piece of map 36b, exactly squares 36b H 9 cd. In April 1918 1st Canadian Casualties Clearing Station began work between Pernes and Sains les Pernes. War Diary give coordinates, for a precise location the map will be a precious help.

Cordially

Have you checked Sir Andrew MacPhail's OFFICIAL HISTORY OF THE CANADIAN FORCES IN THE GREAT WAR, 1914-19: THE MEDICAL SERVICES, Ottawa, King's Printer, 1925?

Cheers,

Nathan

Here are two websites of interest. Borden Battery

War Story of the Canadian Army Medical Corps

This is a very comprehensive "on-line" book on the Canadian Army Medical Corps during the Great War. This on-line book of some 300 pages [with text, figures and footnotes] includes the following chapters an Introduction, Rise of the CAMC, Assembly at Valcartier, Salisbury Plain, With the BEF in France, Second Battle of Ypres (Gas), Festubert, Givenchy, Plugstreet, Establishment of Hospitals in France, Stationary Hospitals and Other Medical Units.

Hospitals and Casualty Clearing Stations – BEF

The website includes eighteen direct photostats of documents, dated 13th. July 1923 which were sent from the Ministry of Pensions to the British Red Cross Society Records Office. Theses typed pages give the names of the locations, in alphabetical order, dates and positions of the various Hospitals or Casualty Clearing Stations on the Western Front for the British Expeditionary Force. The names of these medical units are as follows: Bac-Du-Sud-La to Boisleux-au-Mont, Bonn to Bussy - Le- Chateau. Calais to Chocques. Clerques to Don, Duai to Etaples, Etaples to Gezaincourt, Gezaincourt to Hazebrouk, Hazebrouk to Le Quesnoy, Le Touquet to Lozinghem, Mallasise to Moulle, Namps to Paris Plage, Pernes to Recmenil Farm, Remy to Roziere, Rouitz to Sweveghem,Tincourt to Versailles. This material may be of use to researchers trying to verify hospital and CCS locations. [CEF Study Group – Updated Aug 2006]

Hi,

Yes, I know (quite all), but 1st CCCS War Diary begins near Pernes on April 7, 1918 (page of W/D ), with this precise location : 36b H 9 cd, and I'm just seeking for an abstract of that map, along Pernes to Sains road.
