Can anyone please help with information on why a member of RAF personnel, who was injured in an air raid at Nuneaton on 28th August 1940, would be taken all the way to RAF Cosford for treatment. It is not certain whether he was injured in the raid or whilst helping with rescue work. However, he was hurt enough to be kept in hospital for three weeks before returning to RAF Bramcote.

Would it not have been more practical to have treated him locally?
