What Hospital ?

Recommended Posts

Good Evening

I have a copy of a photograph which shows a large group of wounded soldiers,sitting with them is a nurse. And on her uniform she has a pin which is a letter T. Does this give any kind of clue as to which medical unit or hospital it is?

Kind Regards

For all I know, it means she did her initial nurse training at Thomas's. Or that she was in the Territorial Forces Nursing Service (TFNS).

 

In brief - no, not as far as I'm concerned anyway.

Andy,

  If the 'T' is on the corner of her cape then she is T.F.N.S. {There should be a 'T' on each side of her cape, but they don't always both show up on photographs.

Good Evening to you.

As i have mentioned I have a photo of a large group of wounded soldiers sitting with a nurse who has what looks like a brass letter "T" on her cape. One of the soldiers on the front row is L/Cpl Brunton Smith of the 1/8th Royal Scots who was killed later in the war on the 24/03/1918 It would be great to find the location of the hospital for his family who i will be meeting up with in France for his re dedication service in March.

Kind Regards

Andy

Hi Dai Bach

Here's a photo of the casualties. L/cpl Brunton Smith is marked with an arrow.I find it strange that L/Cpl Smith ended up with a copy of the photograph,How could that be the have been. There must be thousands of group photos like these, but how did an individual soldier get his hands on a copy to send home.

Kind Regards

If he's from Roslin then Mid-Lothian Journal 11 8 1916 under Roslin = " L Cpl Brunston Smith (wounded) is now at Stobhill Hospital, Glasgow."

Ohh, if it's Stobhill Hospital, my great-uncle, George Cressewell Hodge, was there for 9 months in 1918. Trouble is, I've never seen a photo of him, so no idea if he's in the photo!

 

Sue.

P. S. My great-uncle was from Essex, so I don't know why he was sent all the way to Glasgow?
