These were divided between two hospitals and a Children’s Home, together with a recently opened convalescent home.  Ken Crowe will give a talk describing the work of these hospitals, their establishment and funding and the work of the local VADs, both Red Cross and St Johns.

The Human Face of the Great War

Western Front Association Essex Branch chairman Bill Fulton discusses, with illustrations, some of the human stories from the battlefields and on the home front, especially Essex, accompanied by a display of some original items from the War.
