Mary Vincent

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am researching Mary Vincent was known as 'The Soldiers Friend'. She was living in Paris during WW1 and between 1914 and 1919 (her husband Percy was the church organist for the British Embassy). She did a lot of work for soldiers from the Derbyshire area  (where she was born) supplying them with comfort parcels  letters and contacting their families for them. She had a connection to the Red Cross. I wondered if anyone has any information on Mary.
Regards Richard.
