A card sent to Olwen Richards in Coventry by SB in November 1917,









Dear Olwen,

Just a line to let you know I am going on very well. Hoping you are in the best of health. This is a very neat town. And the hospital is fine too. Hope to see you soon.

Your sincerely


The railway was a great importance during the War and carried significant goods traffic down to the coast as well as men – especially the ambulance trains which passed through. Among local places used as hospitals were Rusthall, Calverley Lodge, Nevill Park, Victoria Hall Southborough and Park House Southborough – we are not sure which hospital the card refers to.
