The Countess of Lytton's Hospital 1914-1919

Friday 9 November

The Lytton family had let Knebworth House and were based in London when Pamela Lytton decided to open one of the first Red Cross hopsitals for wounded solidiers.
This talk shares the research carried out on the hopsital, using the Lytton family journals, letters, books and photos, various excellent online resources, plus a few lucky coincidences along the way!
