Apple Bobbing, Quex House garden

Seven patients are gathered around at least one chair and some buckets. Five amused nurses are watching. The men are apple bobbing - trying to grab, using only their mouths, apples floating in buckets of water. The nurses are wearing the small cap and have the Red Cross on their aprons..The gardens of Quex House offered valuable opportunities for relaxation, games and diversions. 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: 1915
