102 VD Treatment Centre becomes Mobile Unit

102 VD Treatment Centre becomes Mobile Unit

After discussions during August it was decided to make 102 VD Treatment Centre a mobile unit so that it could accompany 2 NZ Division on future active operations. The Adviser in Venereology, GHQ MEF, was in favour of the procedure, which was a new development in the British forces. The change took effect from 31 August and the unit reported to ADMS 2 NZ Division on 25 September. A 3-ton truck was specially fitted up for the unit, and in Italy it worked attached to the main dressing station which admitted sickness cases, this enabling most venereal disease cases to be treated in the divisional area.
