First World War – VAD Hospitals

There were eight Voluntary Aid Detachment hospitals in Cheltenham and it was common for the nurses to have a book for the soldiers to sign. This picture gallery shows some pages from scrapbooks from two of the VAD hospitals located in Cheltenham; New Court and Leckhampton Court. These books can currently be seen on display in the Paper Store.
