Military and Auxiliary Hospitals

 

The need for hospitals to treat wounded servicemen and homes for their convalescence was huge once the brutal battles of the First World War were underway. Existing hospitals, such as poor law hospitals, were requisitioned for use as military hospitals. These were staffed by professional nurses, doctors and surgeons, and could be very large, often extended by the use of temporary huts and tents.

The military hospitals were supplemented by auxiliary hospitals also set up by the British Red Cross. The Red Cross had anticipated the need and searched for suitable properties even before the start of the war. A uxiliary hospitals and convalescent homes were often large houses or mansions the use of which was donated by their owners. The hospitals were largely staffed by volunteers, mainly from the Voluntary Aid Detachment (VAD).
