99SIT - Madame Honeyball at Whitehall Hospital (Bell Road, Sittingbourne) with invalid Belgic Soldiers

We have little information concerning Mrs Honeyball. She was the wife of Col Honeyball of Greenstreet near Sittingbourne. The Whitehall Hospital was a Red Cross Hospital in Bell Road Sittingbourne. All 23 of the men wear British uniform, unlike the Belgian hospital at Ramsgate where all the men wear Belgian uniforms or civilian dress. We believe that after the First World War the building reverted to private use.
