Remembered Today:

Miss Pease FAU Dunkirk 1916

Recommended Posts

I have an album with a few postcards of Dunkirk and a few small photos of nurses outside huts and also a couple of concert programmes included.

The only clue I have is one of the concert programmes is for the Friends Ambulance Unit and there are two pieces of paper that have been turned into what seems thank you notes to a Miss Pease from a French soldier.

Can anyone help find out who was Miss Pease ?

Thanks

Terry

PS one of the founders of the FAU according to the book mentioned above

http://www.saxonlodge.net/histories/FriendsAmbulanceUnitHistoryExtracts.pdf

is Jack Pease

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Pease,_1st_Baron_Gainford#Family

who had two daughters:

"Lord Gainford married Ethel, daughter of Sir Henry Havelock-Allan, 1st Baronet, in 1886. They had one son, Joseph, and two daughters, Miriam and Faith (who married Michael Wentworth Beaumont and was the mother of Lord Beaumont of Whitley)."

The certificate number is a late one - it suggests that she didn't go overseas until 1918, though might have been employed in the UK prior to that.

Thank you for taking the time out finding the info.

A couple of concert programmes in the album have 1916 on them and there are two Christmas cards for 1916 as well.
