New to the Archive

Rachel Scott  has kindly donated her great grandmother’s postcard book to the Archive. Her great grandmother Bertha Winterbon was a trained nurse and a member of the Friends Ambulance Unit  and served at the Queen Alexandra Hospital in Dunkirk during the First World War. She must have worked  alongside Ernest Procter who was a Quaker and therefore a Conscientious Objector. The postcard book contains copies of some of Ernest Procter’s war sketches as well as photos of hospital personnel and postcards. An account of Ernest Procter’s War by David Tovey can be found in  The Flagstaff Issue No 44 Winter 2019
