About the memorial: Carmarthen Infirmary y was used for treating military casualties during the Great War, after being taken over by the Red Cross, and was equipped with twelve beds for the treatment of wounded soldiers, sponsored by the Red Cross. It was extended in 1936, and upon the creation of the NHS in 1948 became an NHS Hospital, although Glangwili Hospital, which had been built as an American Military Hospital during WW2, was already being utilised for treating the local people. Carmarthen Infirmary eventually closed in 1996, and has since fallen into disrepair. The building housed a small collection of brass memorial plaques which commemorate the Red Cross Hospital, the one nurse who fell during the Great War, and the former Matron of the Hospital, Linda Eliza Ditcham, RRC, as well as several other plaques, all of which have since been relocated to Glangwili Hospital.
