Where did all the bandages come from? Who supplied the nightshirts for soldiers in hospital?
War Hospital Supply Depots were organised by individuals and staffed by civilian volunteers. Without them supplies of dressings and garments to many hospitals would have been non-existent.
A number of supply depots were located in the Whitchurch area and included
1998 WHITCHURCH MRS BLACK, PREES HALL
4082 WHITCHURCH MRS DOWNES, CALVERHALL
5206 WHITCHURCH MRS CHAMBERS, HANMER VICARAGE
According to an article published in The Chester Chronicle on Saturday 26 August 1916 another War Hospital Supply Depot was situated at Melton Lodge, Alkington Road, Whitchurch. This was being organised by Mrs Godsall of Iscoyd Park and Mrs Blezard of Wickstead Hall.
