Group of Belgian and British soldiers at Quex Park

Group of Belgian and British soldiers at Quex Park, with three members of the VAD staff. The Belgian men are wearing civilian clothes. All the British soldiers are in army uniform. Imperial hospital patients wore hospital blues - blue serge jacket and trousers, together with a white shirt and red tie. This could be a gathering of patients about to leave the hospital. A vehicle is in the background, perhaps ready to transport them to the station or to the military hospital at Shorncliffe near Folkestone. The VAD nurse on the left of the photograph is Alice Cobb, a member of the Margate Cobb family. She worked as Quartermaster of the Hospital. The Quex Park VAD Hospital opened on 15 October 1914 and closed on 31 January 1919. The hospital was run by Kent/178, the Birchington Detachment. The Commandant was Hannah Powell-Cotton (1881-1964), wife of Major Percy HG Powell-Cotton (1866-1940) of Quex Park, founder of the Powell-Cotton Museum. Date: 1914
