Member of the Meru Tribe - Kenya, East Africa

Memeber of the Meru Tribe - Kenya, East Africa. Both men and women of this region stretch their ears, although today more women than men follow the practice. Originally, the piercing was done with a sharpened object such as the point of a knife or a thorn. Heavy jewelry was then placed in the hole to increase the size with materials such as animal bones, wood, stone, and tusks used for jewelry (as shown here) . Date: circa 1910s

Patients in A Ward at Quex Park VAD Hospital

Two patients in bed near the garden window in A Ward in the Drawing Room of Quex House. Alongside them stand two members of the Voluntary Aid Detachment. The man in the right hand bed has his right arm heavily bandaged and stretched out, held in place by an apparatus of wooden support and rope attached to the bed frame. Another patient is sitting reading in a chair to the right. Behind the beds can be seen hung up two boards, probably medical record cards. 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: 1918
