Fred G Whelton

Fred was a patient in September 1918. He sent postcards to his wife Ethel at 23 Hindmans Road, East Dulwich. The first is a photograph of the exterior of the hospital. He says ‘The ward I am in is the top bayed window room on the left of the house’.

He goes on to say that he will also be sending a picture of the ward downstairs which is the same as his above. On this second postcard also sent at 7.15 pm on 10th September he enthuses ‘What do you think of this ward? Can any place look more pleasant and comfortable?’ He sends his fondest love and promises a letter that evening.
