Ho18 Tunnel - Main Casualty Receiving Station

Ho18 is believed to be the planned site of Jersey Underground Hospital. Expected to be at Westmount in St Helier, close to the harbours and General Hospital. There was already a tunnel here from copper mining that had been turned in to an Air Raid shelter in 1939 by the parish of St Helier.

Hauptverbandsplatz

Ho8 Tunnel - Main Casualty Receiving Station

The Tunnel was initially set up to be a barracks and artillery workshop. Then mid-1944, the Germans converted it to the Main Casualty Receiving Station, ready for an invasion of Jersey. The attack never came, and the hospital was never used for that purpose and was maintained by the 319 Division Field Ambulance Company
