110 AUSTRALIAN GENERAL
HOSPITAL (110 AGH)
IN AUSTRALIA DURING WWII
110 Australian General Hospital was stationed at Hollywood in Western Australia during WWII. It was sometimes called Wembley because of its vicinity to Wembley.
Hollywood was still there in early 2002 and until about 5 years beforehand was the privately owned repatriation hospital. Hollywood Private Hospital is located in Monash Avenue, Karrakatta, adjacent to the Karrakatta Cemetery.
QM1 Richard Winters Andes, US Navy (3820858), from USS Swordfish SS-193 died from a ruptured diaphragm and internal haemmorhage on 30 September 1942 in the 110 Australian General Hospital after a horse accident in the Perth area. He was buried in Grave No. 205, Row "G" in the USAF Section in Karrakatta Cemetery on 2 October 1942.
Can anyone help me with more information?
