Gloucestershire’s VA Hospitals: 1914-1919

Wednesday 22 February, 7:30pm

The unprecedented casualties of the First World War led to over 3,000 auxiliary hospitals being set up around the country. These were situated in all manner of buildings, from libraries to grand houses, and were almost entirely staffed by volunteers. In this talk, local author Geoff North traces the development of these hospitals in Gloucestershire and the vital role they played.

Tickets cost £5.00.
