    In 1943 dad was stationed at Ringstead, somewhere in England.

    In the same year he was admitted to 24th. General Hospital Belfast for 6 days.

    I was wondering why a soldier posted in England would be taken to this Hospital in Ireland with all the associated risks of that time.

    Any ideas?

    My dad was stationed in Northern Ireland in 1942 and 1943. I don't think they regarded the ferry crossing as particularly hazardous.

    Why? I don't know, but perhaps they specialised in some specific treatment he needed.
