Hi I've noticed a couple of threads here relating to Indian General Hospitals so I hope this is the right forum. My mother worked in 70th IGH (brackets C) in 1944 and I have a picture of her group in Kalsi in India. I know that IGH stands for Indian General Hospital but I don't know what the 'C' means and I'd be grateful if someone could enlighten me. I also found a site (http://www.cbi-theater.com/hospitals/_cbi_hospitals.html) which lists the locations of this and other Hospitals. It gives the locations of 70th Field Hospital in 1944 as Ledo - Chengtu - Kunming - Calcutta. This prompts a couple more questions: Was it common for hospitals to change designation from 'Field Hospital' to 'General Hospital'? In other words is 70th Field Hospital likely to be the same unit as 70th IGH? I haven't been able to find any reference to either in searching The National Archives 'Discovery'. The Ledo to Kunming road was built in 1943/44 as a major supply route into China. Maybe the field hospital was intended for the American soldiers and locals engaged in building the road (apparently 1100 Americans died during the construction). Can anyone confirm that assumption ? Kalsi, where my mother's picture was taken, is a long way from either the Ledo Road or Calcutta/Kolkatta, so maybe it was, in fact, a different unit. If anyone has any information on 70th IGH C I would be very grateful if you could share it. Many thanks Dave Edit: the posting process is converting 'brackets C brackets' to a copyright symbol so I've changed the text. Sorry to edit within seconds of posting!
