Closing of 1 NZ Rest Home

Closing of 1 NZ Rest Home

After having been open for two and a half years, 1 Rest Home for NZANS and NZWAAC was closed at the end of May 1944. Requests had been received from General Headquarters, Middle East, for the use of 1 and 3 Rest Homes as offices, the area in which the rest homes were situated having been declared a ‘Military area reserved for HQ offices only’. The DMS 2 NZEF felt that it was reasonable that 1 Rest Home should be closed if 3 Rest Home remained open to serve sisters and nurses as well as officers.
