Like other hospitals in Portsmouth (and many others along the south coast) Queen Alexandra Hospital or “QA” played an important part in the treatment of the wounded troops who had been brought back from Normandy. Ahead of the Landings, the medical staff there made preparations to receive the wounded. Once casualties began arriving, on the evening of D-Day, the staff were very busy. As well as treating wounded troops, some German prisoners of war and French civilians who had been brought back across the English Channel were also cared for here.
