Abridged from the Paignton Western Guardian 13 April 1916
On Friday evening 91 wounded soldiers arrived at Paignton for Oldway Hospital, there being 45 cot and 46 walking cases. The men were expeditiously conveyed to Oldway, the walking cases in private cars and the cot cases by motor ambulances and horse vehicles. In less than an hour the wounded had been removed and the Red Cross train out of the station. The Fire Brigade and others again lent valuable assistance in carrying the stretchers from the train to the ambulances, and several others assisted with cars or by other means. This influx leaves about 60 vacancies in the hospital.
