  5. Here in Marlborough, Wilts we were wartime hosts to the US Army's 347th Station Hospital between May of 1944 and May of 45, when it relocated to Chiseldon near Swindon for its last couple of months in the ETO. The 347th were essentially a stabilisation unit, with patients being flown directly from mainland Europe to nearby Ramsbury and Membury airfields before being conveyed by Ambulance to the hospital on the Common on the north side of the town. As a result, few of the 347th's patients stayed more than one night before being moved once more by ambulance, on to hospital trains at Marlborough's GWR station to be taken on to other military hospitals that would specialise in the various branches of medicine required by each individual. As a unit the 347th had just over 1100 beds, all serviced by 43 officers, 75 nurses and some 400 enlisted men as well as 3 American Red Cross Officers. During its active existence from circa D+3 to the end of July 1945, the 347th treated a staggering 62000 patients of whom less than 20 passed away whilst in their care. In 1997 a small group of 347th veterans returned to Marlborough and unveiled a handsome self funded granite memorial on the site of their wartime endeavours. Some 18 years on, the painted inscription on the stone is now illegible and I am leading efforts to get it refurbished; with a local painter offering to do so FOC with a gilt cream paint as used on sun dials. As and when it is completed I would like to arrange a suitable low-key one day event to refresh the local populaces' awareness of what happened in their midsts post D-Day and would like to gather a representative collection of appropriate WW2 military ambulances back on the common. Interestingly in 1997 we did have one WC54 kindly driven up from Somerset by Steve Whitehouse, but the veterans were decidedly cool about it's presence as it obviously made the bad memories just a little too real; something that I had previously given no consideration to. 18 years on we are sadly no longer graced by the presence of any 347th veterans (I actually do not know of any who are still with us), the only benefit of that being that we can contemplate recreating a little bit of history as per the attached images without causing unnecessary offence. If you are on Facebook, please visit my 'Friends of the WW2 347th Station Hospital' page to see more images of the hospital. The 347th were equipped with both WC54 and Austin K2 vehicles as well as anything passing through the area that they could lay their hands on to! If you are interested in being kept updated on when this might happen, PM me. Thanks, Neil Stevens

  12. Hello,Take a look in my album, Ford T Ambulance. Hope you enjoy. This is a 1917, and I want to know the story of this car after ww1, how it ended up in Norway in the early twenties . It was shortened and used as farmers pickup some years and placed in a barn in the fifties. I would like to know if this is a French or US made Ambulance. My plan in the restoring prosess is to keep it as untouched as possible, but I have to make the body new in the correct dimensions. Some parts are missing, hope to find some,but now I do not know what I need. Have a good day from Jon
  13. It is with great pleasure that we can announce that the highly acclaimed “Tracks to the Trenches” (TTTT) is set to be developed and repeated in 2016 (TTTT 2) and 2018* (TTTT 3). In line with recently announced schedules, these events are now being planned for May in their respective years. 2016 (TTTT 2) – a 3 day event from 13-15th May 2016. A very similar format to the 2014 event (TTTT 1); with photo-charters being arranged in advance of the event weekend, evening photo-shoots during the event, access all areas passes, an emphasis on Schools/Group visit packages, plus much more! The 2017 event (13-14th May) is again planned to be a smaller event, specifically looking at Kerr Stuart locomotives and celebrating the Centenary of our flagship engine “Stanhope” – but it is still hoped to maintain a WW1 presence in the Trench area. 2018* (TTTT 3) – a 4 day World War 1 centenary event from 10th – 13th May 2018. Currently anticipated as really special year. Further details to be confirmed shortly, but hopefully developing on from TTTT1 and 2. Please keep the dates in your diaries! The organisers would like to invite any interested exhibitors or traders to contact us through the www.ww1-event.org website – we would be pleased to hear from you! Entry forms etc will start to be released shortly. * Subject to final confirmation

  22. Hello everyone I've been asked to put a request on here for WW2 era Military vehicles to display at the season opening airshow for the Shuttleworth Collection near Biggleswade in Bedfordshire, the deal I've managed to get agreed is for free entry to the airshow for every one in a pre-booked military vehicle (yes passengers included, but as it is a charity please try not to turn up with people hanging out of the rear bodies) More information about the airshow can be found here http://www.shuttleworth.org/events/premiere/ , all that is needed is to email kathryn.hale@shuttleworth for more info or to book in and if possible attach a picture of the vehicle you want to bring. Or drop me a PM for more information as well, I'm one of the volunteers on the aircraft and vehicles and we are trying to get a bigger presence of ground based attactions at the shows and I'll try to see if any possible to set up any photo opportunities as well. Cheers and hope to see/hear from some of you soon. Steve Panter
