A considerable number of beds were vacant at Oldway up to Monday last. Many of the convalescent patients having departed since their arrival a few weeks since. On Monday afternoon a portion of a convoy of wounded men arrived by train, the remainder having detrained at other towns further up the line. These consisted of 58 walking and 28 cot cases. The men were conveyed to Oldway by private motors and G.W.R. buses, members of the Fire Brigade again rendered valuable assistance in carrying the stretchers from the train to the waiting conveyances. The ambulance train was in the station less than an hour. Comparatively few people witnessed the arrival of the patients.
