Air Ministry Casualty Branch, Oxford Street

The Air Ministry Casualty Branch moved to 73-77 Oxford Street in late 1942. The tall Art Deco building had been the showroom for Drage’s before the war, which is the era when the photograph was taken, and it appears that some shops remained in the building even in wartime. One account speaks of the Casualty Branch as being in ‘a suite of offices above some shops diagonally opposite the Dominion Theatre in Tottenham Court Road’.
