Royal Victoria Military Hopsital Netley

Having recently visited and written about the military cemetery which adjoins the now country park which was formerly the Royal Victoria military hospital, I thought it was time to have a better look around and explore the history of the main hospital.

In it's day the main building (sadly demolished in 1966) was the longest in the world. I hadn't realised until my latest visit that in it's hey day the hospital had it's own branch line and railway station.

A recently erected display  shows the station which stood at the rear of the main building , alas all long gone, but a few traces of the tracks can still be seen.

These photographs give some sense of the scale of the hospital, judging from the uniforms were probably taken during WW1.

Built after the Crimean war on the orders of Queen Victoria, it's purpose was to train army nurses and doctors and to treat military patients to ensure their swift return to duty.

Netley was chosen as the site because it was near to Southampton so that hospital ships from around the British Empire could safely dock and disembark patients.
