From Front Line to Convalescent Hospital

Details

In this talk Dr Jessica Meyer (University of Leeds) traces the journey that wounded British soldiers went on from the front line, through a variety of sites of medical care-giving, to recovery in convalescent hospitals on the home front. She looks at the different types of care-givers, both men and women, they encountered along the way, as well as significant medical technologies that helped to save lives throughout the war.
