RED CROSS HOSPITAL AT HOME: Held by officers of the Suffolk 70 & 72 VADs at the Hospital

East Suff Gaz 8 Apr 

on Wednesday to wind up the work of that institution. The Beccles Branch of the Red Cross Society
commenced work in  connection with the war  on February 15th, 1914, [the Newspaper  records the
date, wrongly, as 1917]  opening a  hospital for sick soldiers in the Manse, Frederick’s Road, where

several hundreds of patients were treated and carefully nursed and tended.
In June 1917 new buildings on the Meadows adjoining the Manse grounds [now Greenway], built in

 
 

the usual war hospital style, were opened with accommodation for 44 patients. From that date until
practically last week the Hospital was full - sometimes more than full,  accommodation being made

for  special  cases  in  the  “house”  which  was  used  as  the  Commandant’s  office    and  retiring  and
sleeping rooms for the resident staff.

 
 

With the Armistice, the days of the Hospital were numbered. To celebrate its close, an AT Home was
held. Presentations were made to Commandant, Mrs Wood-Hill; Mrs Robinson, Quartermaster; Miss
Tracy & Sister A Mason, sister in charge
