Re: [REF] 202nd Gen Hosp and Camp Cooke

Great to put all that together and find the location, and good luck with the French "history"! The 203rd administered their General Hospital in what was then--and since is--the Raymond Poincare Hospital. It's part of the French public hospital system in Paris, and there's a museum and arch...

Re: Hello from France

OK, this is only a linguistic comment. "Gerard" from France, I think, is using in the previous post "shade" directly translated from a French expression, "faire ombrage ". So a word-for-word translation into English would involve "shade". But the meaning of th...

Re: medical tools and devices

FYI, re the medical "tools". I have some films of dental and oral surgical work done during WW2, 1944/45, in an army hospital in Paris. These include footage of both routine oral treatment and maintenance, and care and "fixation" of facial war wounds and fractures. The films were...

Re: Sisters at 202nd Gen Hosp and Camp Cooke

Bingo! Thanks, Bruce....Great map. And you can kind of pinpoint the time period from it, as well. The 815th Hospital Center shows on the map, and that entity had a relatively short life. I'm not at home to verify this with the documents, but I think the 815th was created in February of 1945, and dis...

Re: Sisters at 202nd Gen Hosp and Camp Cooke

Alain has a point, check out the video of the American Hospital in Paris, 1906 to 2006, and see what you think:

Alain At one point, the 203rd and the 108th General Hospital units joined up in Normandy, and began working together to construct a tent hospital. I have some pictures of this joint effort posted on the 203rd site, starting with image 20 on the following page: http://hospitals.med-dept.com/203rd.Gen...
