Information Sought

WWII Hospital, Market Road, Remuera, Auckland

  1. U.S. Naval No. 4 Mobile Hospital 1942 - 1944 a.k.a. "Camp Oranje"
  2. Royal N.Z. Air force – Medical Orderlies Training School

I (Terry Sutcliffe) am researching the history of the above facilities that existed on east side of Market Road, Remuera during WWII.

The grounds are owned by the Dilworth Estates alongside the Railway line. It was leased to the Remuera Tennis Club from 1908.

In 1942 the land was requisitioned for defense purposes by the Public Works Department. Both the U.S. No. 4 Mobile Hospital, and latterly the Royal N.Z. Air force Training School, were based there.

I would be very interested to contact anyone with the following: -

  • Written information on either the hospital or the Training School
  • Photos of interior/exterior of buildings/grounds
  • Anecdotal stories
  • Any leads that can be given

Please contact:
