102ND AUSTRALIAN GENERAL HOSPITAL,
AT HOLLAND PARK HOSPITAL, BRISBANE, QLD
The Australian Army's 102 Australian General Hospital established themselves at Ekibin Hospital in Brisbane during WW2. They were capable of looking after 2,000 patients with a staff of about 600 personnel.
Ray Roberts of the 112th Transport Company was involved in relocating the 102 AGH from Ekibin Hospital to the Holland Park Hospital which was previously occupied by the 42nd General Hospital, US Army.
102nd Australian General Hospital, Holland Park
102 AGH at the Holland Park Hospital had numerous covered wooden ramps connecting the various wards and offices on the large site. There were all the usual sections one would expect to find in a large hospital such as the Physiotherapy section and the Occupation Therapy Section and a very well appointed Red Cross Library. Patients would spend time in the Occupational Therapy Section working on different types of handicraft, including using hand looms and treadle looms or performing wood working in the hospital's carpenter shop.
In 1946 the Commanding Officer of 102 AGH was Lieutenant Colonel D.F. Millar (QX44608) and its Matron was Major I.A. Marks (QFX6103).
I'd like to thank Ray Denning (now deceased), former President of the Mt. Gravatt District Historical Association for his assistance with this home page.
Can anyone help me with more information?
