Scots Guards assisted St Mary’s Hospital on the Isle of Wight in support of OP RESCRIPT.
The Ministry of Defence say that soldiers are working together with NHS staff to clear the records room to set up new wards for patients.
Troops also painted old beds from a local prison for use in the hospital.
Operation Rescript is a military operation to assist the UK’s efforts to tackle the 2020 coronavirus pandemic in the United Kingdom.
In March, the Ministry of Defence announced the formation of the COVID Support Force as part of its measures to help tackle the Coronavirus outbreak. The support force comprised 20,000 military personnel tasked with supporting public services, which included 150 military personnel being trained to drive oxygen tankers to support the National Health Service.
Scientists from Defence Science and Technology Laboratory also began supporting Public Health England. Command and control of the COVID Support Force falls under Standing Joint Command, headed by Major General Charles Stickland.
The COVID Support Force includes 10 regional commands which are overseen from Aldershot.
In April, an additional 3,000 reservist personnel joined the COVID Support Force.
