Research Facts
The No. 4 Canadian General Hospital was organized in Toronto on 25 March 1915 by the University of Toronto. Stationed at: Shorncliffe, 28 May - 15 October 1915; Salonika, Greece 9 Nov 1915 - 18 May 1916; Kalamaria 19 May 1916 - 17 Aug 1917; Basingstoke, 18 Sept 1917 - 2 July 1919. Officers Commanding: Colonels T. A. Roberts, W. A. Hendry, H. C. Parsons with Nursing Matron A. J. Hartley. General hospitals were originally equipped for 520 beds, but were increased in 1915 to 1,040 after which date they varied in bed capacity as necessary up to 2,000. In 1915 a large Allied expeditionary force landed at Thessalonik (Salonika) as the base for operations against pro-German Bulgaria. This culminated in the establismnet of the Macedonian or Salonika Front. Further information concerning the 20 hospitals stationed in Salonika during 1915-1919 can be found in the book "Under the Devil's Eye: The British Army in Salonika, 1915-1918" by Alan Wakefield and Simon Moody, published by Sutton. Further information can be found in the donor file.

Research Facts
The photographs were likely taken of patients at the Basingstoke Neurological and Plastic Surgery Hospital R. C. A. M. C. during the Second World War; Dr. Gordon, the album’s original owner, served at the hospital during the war; the hospital itself also served as the Number Four Canadian General Hospital during the First World War and became Park Prewett Mental Hospital, which originally specialized in mental health care, in the inter-war period; the depicted plastic surgery wing of the hospital was known as Rooksdown House, and was established by Sir Harold Gillies, often called the father of modern plastic surgery; Dr. Gordon worked with Gillies and was a successful plastic surgeon who aided the wounded of the Second World War and worked to grow the Plastic Surgery field during and after the war.
Dr. Gordon graduated from the University of Toronto in 1926. After serving in the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps in World War II, he returned to Toronto to become the Chief of Plastic Surgery at the Toronto General Hospital and the first head of the University of Toronto training program in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
