Anyone know where it was based?

I'm assuming somewhere pretty adjacent to Lancashire Landing Cemetery as my chap is buried there.

TIA

The RND Medical Unit War Diary entry for 8 May 1915 states "Orders were received that British wounded were to proceed to Casualty Clearing Station 'W' Beach and that none but French wounded were to be embarked at 'V' Beach. The officer and three men posted at 'V' Beach on 6 May were therefore withdrawn." Where exactly 11th CCS was at 'W' Beach I am not sure but all their DOW went into Lancashire Landing Cemetery so I imagine it was close by.
