Lady Wilhelmine Rose Robb (née Stoughton) was the wife of Major-General Sir Frederick Spencer Robb KCB, KCMG, KCVO. She formed the Lady Robb's Prisoner of War Packing Association to provide parcels mainly to pow's from the 2nd Dragoon Guards (Queen's Bays), 1st Battalion Essex Regiment and the Tank Corps although I understand it also supplied them to Officers from other units. I have seen two different London addresses used by the Association - 60 Rutland Gate and 53 Grosvenor Square.

Lady Robb died in Hethe, Oxfordshire on the 24th December 1948 her husband having passed away on the 8th February of the same year.
