New Zealand Medical Services in Middle East and Italy
Visit of DDMS 2 NZEF to Greece
The DDMS, Colonel MacCormick, arrived in Greece by air on 5 April, a month after the arrival of the first New Zealand personnel. He had come to discuss with the GOC the sending of more New Zealand medical units, including 3 NZ General Hospital and a convalescent depot, to Greece. It was also proposed to establish in Greece a convalescent home and rest home for nurses and a Red Cross depot, and to send over the Mobile Surgical Unit when ready. This proposal had the warm approval of DDMS BTG.
