by ENID BAGNOLD abridged in four parts by NEVILLE TELLER
Read by Wendy Hiller (1) In 1914 the author was 25 years old. At the outbreak of war she went to work as a VAD nurse at the Royal
Herbert Hospital, Woolwich.
In 1918 she published this diary of her years there - a portrait of the whole miniature world of the hospital, self-absorbed, unreal, yet, through the eyes of this watching, pitying girl, more real to us at this distance than the reality. Producer GRAHAM GAULD
