“On Sunday 27th I had a walk over to the ‘Forestry Village’ about a mile from Obozerskaya with the Sanitary Sergeant. This little settlement is a group of about half-a-dozen houses surrounding a large school-house. Here, in pre-war days, the Russian Government trained some of their many forest rangers. I found it to be a delightful little spot, and had a look through the school with a view to acquiring it as a hospital. To my mind it should make an ideal little hospital, with billets for the staff in the adjoining houses.”
