Hot press announcement – we are delighted the talk on Saturday 27th May will be about the work of the Red Cross Auxiliary Hospitals ‘at home’ by focusing on their work in North Yorkshire. I believe the afternoon session may also involve coming into close contact with various pieces of equipment, which sounds fascinating. We’ll circulate more details as soon as everything is confirmed.
Did you know that, during the war, the museum distributed tomatoes grown in its greenhouses to various convalescent hospitals in the region? There’s a folder of correspondence and photographs in the Museum’s archive (ref. TBM/7/1/14).
