It actually stands for Stationary, according to that site I linked earlier. :wink:
According to my research, these were "smaller hospitals, generally based in forward areas". But not going to insist on it being changed if you've already read it as Station, as close enough. https://www.awm.gov.au/collection/U51723

Section 64 revised

https://librivox.org/uploads/triciag/anzacbook_64_various_128kb.mp3

These scanned texts are sometimes a bit fuzzy which why I misread 'biz' as 'bix' :hmm:
Yup, do understand. Just wondered what bix was :lol:
All fine now, thanks for updating it.

I assumed it must be some perculiarly Australian term. After all "biz" isn't exactly the Queen's English :hmm:
