A group of Bright Young Things indulging in one of their many silly pranks, in this case a mock wedding where Elizabeth Ponsonby 'married' John Rayner. The best man was Robert Byron. Also present is Babe Plunkett Green beside Elizabeth. The wedding party breakfasted at a well-known Piccadilly restaurant where a cleric addressed them, though it was later discovered he was not from the parish he said he was. Date: 1929

Patient in Bed 29 Quex Park VAD Hospital

Photograph of a patient (name unkown) in Bed 29 in 'C' Ward at Quex Park VAD Hospital during the First World War. The man has suffered a severe wound to his right hand or arm, which is heavily bandaged and resting on a pillow. A table close by the bed has things he needs close at hand - including a Red Cross mug or cup, cigarettes and matches. Some clothing is piled on a chair; a towel is hanging over the bed head. A medical record sheet is hanging from the foot of the bed. Beside him can be seen one of the display cases in the room, which was (and still is) a gallery of the Powell-Cotton Museum. Behind the bed screens protect the glass of a floor to ceiling case, built to house a natural history diorama. 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: circa 1916
