From 1914 to 1919 Hoole Bank House was run as a Red Cross Hospital that treated over 1,100 patients.
In November last year Hammond Historian Caroline Hamilton and local historian David Rees mounted a small exhibition about this period in the history of Hoole Bank.
See blog post Hoole Bank House and The Great War for the text from these panels.
The exhibition also featured 26 photographs of the soldiers housed at Hoole Bank during this period. This photos had previously been misidentified.
The Hammond was also lucky enough to be chosen to receive a WWI loan box from the Imperial War Museum. This wonderful resource contained original and replica artefacts. We were able to put some of these on display before Christmas.
