Comments: This account traces the story of Heidelberg Repatriation Hospital in Melbourne, from when it took over from the wartime military hospital in 1947. Catering exclusively to the needs of ex-service personnel, the Repat rapidly developed a strong sense of community among staff and patients. Staff were often ex-service themselves, and for many years the hospital administration retained a strong military flavour.
