BRITAIN'S LOST MILITARY HOSPITAL

WELCOME to all that remains of Britain's once state-of-the-art military hospital where plastic surgery was pioneered for injured WW1 troops who survived the SOMME. From the Boer War in the 1900's and the Somme to WW2 and the first Gulf War of the 1990's the injured war heroes of almost all Britain's 20th Century conflicts were nursed back to health within these now crumbling walls. The now abandoned Cambridge Military Hospital at Aldershot was last centuries' version of Birmingham's high-tech Queen Elizabeth Hospital - with seriously injured troops being rushed there to recover from battles spanning the four corners of the globe. Pictures how the once spotlessly hygienic operating theatres and wards - with the British Empire's first plastic surgery unit opened by British military doctor Captain Giles in 1916 and treated troops disfigured in the catastrophic Battle of the Somme - are now a shadow of their former glory
