Destruction of a colonial building.
Sad to report that, at this time, another part of Vacoas history is being demolished. This old colonial building was the military HMS Mauritius hospital and later became the civilian ENT (ears, nose and throat) hospital. The contractors are now stripping the buildings of all the wooden beams and supports. I have been informed that the contractor is reselling all the good wooden beams.
Pity that the main building could not be saved for historical reasons. The site will now make way for a new modern ENT hospital which was made possible by generous Indian government grants.
