Medical Units of 2 NZEF in Middle East and Italy

Convalescent Depot

Convalescent Depot

The Convalescent Depot assembled at Trentham with the Second Echelon under the command of Col F. M. Spencer,17 whose enthusiasm soon made it a smart military unit, recognised as the best drilled unit in Trentham. It was a pleasure to see it on the parade ground. A full programme of lectures and training was carried out by the five officers and 49 other ranks in the unit. Col Spencer was promoted to command 2 NZ General Hospital, and the command of the Depot was handed over to Lt-Col. N. F. Boag18 before the Second Echelon embarked.
