The unit which made up the No. 7 (Queen's) Canadian General Hospital began in Canada (in Kingston, with personnel from Kingston) as No. 5 Canadian Stationary Hospital, leaving in May 1915 for England, where it doubled its accomodations from 200 patients to 400. For eight months, they ran a 600 bed hospital in Cairo, Egypt. At the close of the Gallipoli campaign, they were moved to France and conducted a 1040 bed hospital during the Somme offensive. They were again moved with the advent of winter, and could accomodate 2,300 patients. As more personnel were needed throughout its movement and growth, they were recruited and brought overseas from Kingston.
