Three men standing by wooden escape ladder at Quex Featured Print

Three men standing by wooden escape ladder at Quex

Three men are standing by an extendable wooden ladder. Two of the men are wearing the patients uniform of hospital blues but the trousers only. The uniform of jacket and trousers was made of blue serge. The man in the centre is in civilian clothes and may have been employed at Quex Park. The ladder was a fire escape ladder, capable of extending to the top floor of the house. Major Powell-Cotton was very concerned about the risk of fire to the house and his collections. He had enlarged the garden pond to act as a water reservoir and installed piping in the house to feed hose reels on each floor of the house. 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
