We have located individual influenza victims from the historical records at the Etaples Army base and linked these otherwise geographically constrained outbreaks in France to American nurses and doctors who travelled as volunteers between Etaples and Boston in the USA . We propose that this group of volunteers could form a conduit to transfer an evolving influenza virus away from the Western Front to Harvard Hospital and beyond.
