95 wounded arrive for Oldway Hospital - 4 February 1917

Abridged from the Paignton Western Guardian 8 February 1917

On Sunday evening a convoy of ninety-five wounded and sick soldiers arrived at Paignton by Red Cross train for Oldway Hospital, fifteen being “sit up” cases and the remainder cot cases, a very large proportion compared with most of the convoys. Many of the men were suffering from trench feet, and all the stretcher cases were expeditiously conveyed to Oldway by ambulance cars. Private cars conveyed the walking cases. Members of the Fire Brigade as usual lent their valued assistance in removing the patients from the train to the ambulance.
