Camerton Court, Somerset
« on: Sunday 09 May 21 09:07 BST (UK) »
In my father's military record I have come across several references to Camerton Court in Somerset. It sounds as if it was a military hospital, but I can only find references to it as a country house.  Can anyone help?

Thanks, Salt

Itís possible it was one of those place taken over by the Army for use as a convalescent home for soldiers. It is a large grade 2 listed country house, you can find a picture and information on Wikipedia, but there is no mention of it being used by the military.
