British field hospitals WW2
published by Brian & Pam Airey on Mon, 05/02/2024 - 14:27

My father was in the Royal Engineers during WW2. He served in various areas one of which was in Holland. We know he was helping to mend the dykes on Walcheren and was also in Knokke & Blankenberg. I found out that he was hospitalised whilst testing a dumper truck along a well used track when it struck an uncleared mine. The force of the blast was absorbed by the load but Dad was taken to hospital. I assume it was to a military hospital, but this is not necessarily the case. The RE records are poor as the engineers were working with diverse sections of the fighting army and my enquiries with them have been unsuccessful. Does anyone have any ideas how I may find any more information?
