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.
