The French numbered their military hospitals and adding to them supporting facilities, and that makes tracking a lot easier.

We can devide  them in:

Auxiliary hospitals [Hôpital Auxiliaires = HA numbered] with annexes

Volunteer hospitals [Hôpital Bénévole = HB numbered bis] with annexes

Complementary hospitals [Hôpitaux complémentaires = HC numbered] with annexes

Temporary hospitals [Hôpitaux Temporaires]

Besides them are numerous of hospices, only identifiable by their names.

 

I will be concentrating on wards but also external with pictures of people and part of buildings. Thus not on individual soldiers.

The items must also have indentification of that hospital/hospices, I can not use unidentified photo's at the moment.

When I expand my database, I can use that later to identify the others.
