Gledhow Hall Military Hospital, display of needlecraft
c1915-1919 View shows a group of patients at Gledhow Hall Military Hospital displaying their needlecraft. Belts have been covered with cross stitches, flags and regimental badges. Pictures of animals and figures are also on display. Needlework was one of many activities encouraged by hospital staff to help with the rehabilitation of the soldiers after the horrors suffered on the battlefields of the First World War.
My Grandfather Charles Maylin is far right in this photograph. I have some of the needlecraft exhibits shown.
