Scene at Westminster Hospital on Christmas Eve, 1940

Women in WWII - Westminster Hospital on Christmas Eve, 1940

The Victorian medical scene was not bad at all. In London, St Thomas’s, a medieval foundation, had to move to make way for a railway line; its new site was beside the Thames, where the air was now pure, due to Bazalgette’s magnificent new drainage system. Nevertheless Florence Nightingale insisted on open balconies and airy wards, to counteract any hospital-generated miasma, and her designs influenced hospital architecture for decades, in Britain and the Empire.

Care of Wounded Soldiers at Cardiff Royal Infirmary during the Great War. The wounded hero is extremely well cared for, his sacrifice and suffering repaid by two nurses and a senior officer. Would this be a reality for the majority of the many war-wounded?
