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
