    Can anyone tell me about this Military Hospital during 1942 - my father was wounded and ended up here. I would love to see any photographs of the place, is it still called this or is there another more upto date name?
    Any info would be appreciated.

    Just found this post whilst going through some old photos, one of which I attach. It is the original of an item that appeared in the Natal Witness 23 October 1942 , the article I also enclose.
    My Father is the tall chap on the right whilst the blonde chap on his right he has labelled as George and the next one along as Sparks. Wish I knew more though
