56 wounded arrive for Oldway - 24 March 1918

Abridged from the Paignton Western Guardian 28th March 1918

On Sunday evening a convoy of fifty-six wounded men, all cot cases, arrived by Red Cross train for Oldway Hospital, Paignton. Many of the cases were those of gassing, and several men were noticed with bandaged heads. The Fire Brigade and police assisted in placing the stretchers in the ambulance vans, and the usual willing staff at Oldway attended to the gallant fellows at that end. The cases were, it is understood, early casualties in the recent fighting.
