    Default Woburn Place, Bloomsbury - Chemical Warfare & Gas Course

    The diary of one of the RAFVR meteorologists I am researching, includes a reference to a course on Chemical Warfare & Gas from 1-5 July 1940, at Woburn Place, Bloomsbury; the course finished with an exam. The corresponding period in his Service Record simply notes AM Unit (a).

    I appreciate the above is largely self-explanatory, but I'm wondering if anyone has come across this before.

    Just curious.

    Hi Brian,
    The HQ of the British Medical Association (B.M.A. House) is in Tavistock Square, which joins Woburn Place.

    Thank you, Bruce, I can see the logic. This was shortly after Dunkirk and there was a heightened fear of gas attacks. I have seen similar short-term postings/detachments in other service records.
