US Navy Mobile Hospital No.4.

WWII Green Felt Unit Pennant from the US Navy’s No.4 Mobile Hospital also known as Fleet Hospital 104. This is from the Pacific War against Japan . The American Navy established itself on the North Island of New Zealand from June 1943 to February 1945.

 This very large US Navy Hospital was part of the American World War Two war effort against the Japanese in the Pacific. It was constructed in June 1943 by the 84th and 55th US Navy Construction Battalions (CB's -Seabees). All US Navy Mobile Hospitals were renamed in June 1944 with number designations being changed to start with one hundred and one – The U.S. Navy Mobile Hospitals in New Zealand were Mobile No. 4 (Fleet Hospital 104) and MOB 6 (FH 106) both in New Zealand. MOB 5 (FH105) and MOB 7 (FH 107) were in New Caledonia; MOB 8 (FH 108) in Guadalcanal; MOB 9 (FH 109) was at Camp Hill Brisbane: MOB 10 (FH110) in the Russell Islands; FH 103, FH 111 and FH 115 in Guam; FH 114 in the Philippines. Because they were mobile hospitals they could also have been located in other areas, for example FH 105 is also recorded in New Zealand, some probably moving to forward areas as the front changed.
