Description
been telling me that we are to be in the very thick of things, as we are to be with the 1st Serbian Division, which is right up at The Front. She says there's lots of work ahead of us, so that's grand. I'm longing to get started to work. We are such a jolly Unit - 75 in all. The Drs. are:- Drs. Inglis, Chesney, Corbet & Potter & the Administrator is Miss Henderson. Mrs. Havenfield is C.O. of the Transport, commonly known as "The Buffs"! The "Greys" or Hospital staff consist of 16 trained sisters & 16 V.A.D. & several "odds" - ie
cooks, sanitary inspector, secretary etc: - we have brought out everything with us - Hospital stores, supplies, equipment & cars & we have to look after 'em all ourselves - "some" work when it comes to changing our mode of travelling i.e. at Archangel & again at the Frontier.
We are to be divided in to 2 Units "A" at the base, & "B" up the line as a Field Dressing station - the former under Dr. Inglis, the latter with Dr. Chesney as C.O. - well, enough for just now. Letters are being collected to-night as we reach the Frontier to-morrow./
