british military hospital

Hi

Hope someone can help.

My mother and father met at the BMH in tripoli. My father would like to go back to revisit but I can't find any info on it.

Is the building still there?? Is it still a hospital?? Would it be recognisable??

I would not want him to go out there and be disappointed.

ANY info would be helpful..

Thank you.

Hi Thank you very much for your reply.

I'm sorry I really don't know very much more than it was called the British Military Hospital and was outside the centre of Tripoli.

I have searched all over the net but can't seem to get any info or pictures..

Could you maybe ask some of the older residents in Tripoli please, who might remember??

My father says it was a really old nice building... not much to go on I know...

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Hi Rosslyn01:

I worked in this hospital in 1966-1967 after it was transferred from the British military to the Libyan government in 1966. It was called INAS hospital, situated in the Collina Verde area of Tripoli on the main road out to Idris Airport, the city's main airport at the time. I have many happy memories of my time there. I hope this might help your Libyan respondants to determine if it is still there..Good luck.
