"The 216th General Hospital was activated on 1 June 1941 at Camp Forest, Tennessee, and left the United States on 21 March 1944, landing at Grenock, Scotland, eight days later. From April 1944 until June 1945, the 216th General Hospital maintained operations at Longleat, Warminster, (Wiltshire), England. The unit ceased operations in England on 16 June 1945, and embarked for Le Havre, France, arriving on 17 June 1945. Later the unit moved to Etretat, then to Verdun, and on 6 August 1945 arrived at Bad Cannstatt, Germany. On 12 September 1945, this unit resumed operations as a 1,000-bed hospital."
Some evidence that the 216th was also in Coventry.
