Patients undergoing treatment in the burns treatment centre at No. 2 RAF General Hospital at Maison Carée, Algiers. Standing by the trolley is Sister Hipkin PMRAFNS of Wroxham, Norfolk. The hospital was established in June 1943, in a building formerly occupied by Headquarters, North-West African Air Force, prior to which it functioned as a school. The burns treatment centre was located in the former linen store of the school, into which locally-made concrete baths were installed.
