Healing Hands on the Home Front -

The work of local auxiliary hospitals in World War I

An exhibition paying tribute to the work of Argyll and Bute’s local auxiliary hospitals during the First World War is on display in Dunoon Library.  Many local hospitals and homes provided medical care for wounded servicemen and women but, to cope with demand for beds and treatment, special auxiliary hospitals were set up by the Red Cross in various locations around the country. Healing Hands on the Home Front provides a glimpse into the lives of the medical volunteers and tells the stories of some of the patients through old photographs and papers.  It was common for large houses to be taken over and run as hospitals, none more grand than Mount Stuart on Bute where hospital beds were surrounded by marble pillars and oil paintings.  The exhibition includes images of this hospital from the Bute Collection along with a large collection of photographs from Hermitage House in Helensburgh, and images of patients and nurses at Letters Lodge auxiliary hospital in Strachur.  It will remain on display in Dunoon Library until 17th February.
