Looking for relatives of people who served with the 20th General Hospital in Assam, India during WWII.

My grandfather, John Gordon Mason, served with the 20th General Hospital.  Would love to exchange photos if anyone has some.

  • Hi David,

    We searched the Records of the Surgeon General (Army) (Record Group 112) series, WWII Administrative Records 1940-1949: 319.1 Unit Annual Reports (Entry 54-A), and located a multi-part file for the 20th General Hospital. The file contains mostly textual records, but there are some photographs of the hospital dispersed throughout. The file consists of five folders and spans an entire box (approximately 1000 pages). If you are able to visit the National Archives, we will be happy to make the records available to you in our research rooms. The Textual Reference Archives II Branch (RDT2) is located at 8601 Adelphi Road, College Park, MD, near the University of Maryland--College Park campus. For more information on conducting research at this facility, please visit our website at: http://www.archives.gov/dc-metro/college-park/

    If you are unable to visit the National Archives, you may wish to hire a private researcher to do research for you. A list of private researchers who are familiar with National Archives facilities is available on our website at: http://www.archives.gov/research/hire-help/index.html.

  • Hi Megan,

    Thank you so much for this information!!  I live in the Midwest now, but am originally out East.  On a visit with family I hope to get to the Archives and look through the information you reference.   It's really exciting news.  Thank you again!
