78 wounded for Oldway - 2 September 1916

Abridged from the Paignton Western Guardian 7 September 1916

On Saturday evening a Red Cross train brought 78 wounded soldiers from Southampton for Oldway Hospital. Thirty were cot cases, and they were as usual conveyed from train to ambulance by the Fire Brigade, while private cars took the walking cases. There appeared to be some rather severe cases among the stretcher occupants, but as ever the men were cheerful. A good crowd quickly assembled round the station and gave the soldiers a cheer. The cases were expeditiously dealt with by a competent staff at Oldway.
