Remembered Today:

LCD Seaford


Recommended Posts

I've seen a number of references to LCD Seaford in the brief details of men of the 4th London's. It think it might be a convalescent hospital but then again I'm probably way off! Any help is much appreciated.

Seaford was a major base in WWI. The LCD probably refers to a Command Depot. These were the last step depots of convelescing soldiers prior to being sent back. L might mean London Command Depot for London Terriers, (Not sure on that part).

The Canadians presence was immense.

Seaford was also a base for the British West Indies Regt. Several of their number lie in the cemetery there along with very many Canadians.
