Thanet VAD Motor Transport Group Featured Print

Thanet VAD Motor Transport Group

Thanet VAD Motor Transport Group and stretcher bearers outside The Yarrow Home for Convalescent Children (date - journal). Sir Alfred Yarrow opened this home in 1894. In late 1914 the Committee of Management offered the Home to the military authorities as a military hospital, entirely staffed and paid for. This arrangement continued until c. August 1916 when the hospital was taken over by the Canadian military medical authorities. Major Powell-Cotton was the Area VAD Transport Officer in Thanet, responsible for the transport of patients from their arrival on ambulance trains at local stations to the nine VAD hospitals in the area. Between 1914 and 1916 he was assisted in this by the Yarrow Stretcher Bearers. This commemorative photograph was taken at the time the Yarrow authorities stopped running the hospital in August 1916. The photograph was taken in front of the main building. Today (2014) this building is part of East Kent College, Broadstairs. The men in the photograph are wearing 'YH' armbands. Major Powell-Cotton's ambulance 'Q2' is on the left. He converted his Renault car into this ambulane in September 1914. He is sitting on the left hand side of the front seat. Date: 1916

Prince Louis of Battenberg with his sons

Prince Louis of Battenberg (1854-1921), British First Sea Lord in 1914 with his sons, George (right) and Louis (Lord Louis Mountbatten). During the first few months of World War I, anti-German feeling among the British public forced him to resign. The Prince had taken British nationality at the age of fourteen and those who knew him had no doubt of his loyalty. Prince George of Battenberg continued on active service and the younger Prince Louis (left) joined him as a midshipman shortly after the Battle of Jutland. When the same tide of anti-German feeling forced the royal family to abandon German names and titles their family name became 'Mountbatten'. Prince Louis of Battenberg was married to Princess Victoria of Hesse, eldest daughter of Princess Alice.
