Elwick Road, Ashford
30 June 1917
The transcribed text reads:
Couldn’t get here to Dover for this afternoon. I had an awful job this morning getting one for Canterbury. As I had no word from Chiseldon shall be in Canterbury till Monday afternoon. Come up if you can tomorrow
Miss Kathleen Bashford
During the War there was a VAD hospital in Elwick Road. Mr George Back of 16, Albemarle Road was a VAD orderly at Elwick Road. Mr Richard Baldock, of 109 New Town also served as a VAD orderly at the hospital in Elwick Road.
There also was a Drill Hall in Elwick Road, which, we believe, was demolished to give way to the new International Train Station Terminal.
Have you got a picture of the Drill Hall? Can you share it with us?
