War Memorial Nursing Home / Royal Navy Hospital / BMH Mount Kellett [1932-1975]
The War Memorial Nursing Home opened on this site on Wednesday, 16th March 1932 .
Despite the name, in its early years it was a civilian hospital. The name referred to the fund that commemorated the people who fought in WW1, and which contributed to the costs of building this hospital.
After WW2, the Royal Navy Hospital in Wanchai was considered in too poor condition to be re-used. So the War Memorial Hospital was taken over by the Navy, and became the new Royal Navy Hospital.
The hospital has been demolished, and a housing development now stands in its place - though "its foundation stone remains" .
