    Hello all - long time no post

    Just a long shot, but was wondering if anyone out there knows of the current location - if still existing - of No3 NZ hospital that was used during WW2 for injured soldiers.
    My father was there for 2 weeks in 1943 - I am thinking of visiting Beirut end of year and would like to trace his 'footsteps' as it were.
    He was also responsible for the salvaging of the Dutch vessel 'Saroena' in 1943 which was hit by the infamous U81 (responsible for firing on the Ark Royal a year or so earlier)

    Many thanks
