Fanny and Dora Watson, Kent/178

Fanny (right) and Dora (left) Watson. Taken at the Houghton photographic studio. The Watson Fanny Watson is wearing three 'War Service Bar' stripes on her left arm. This indicates that the photograph was taken no earlier than November 1917. The Bar could be earned by serving an aggregate of 2, 688 hours in the first year (i.e. less than 13 months) and 2, 496 hours in subsequent years but could not be obtained prior to the thirteen or twelve month period being up. Fanny & Dora Watson in 1911 lived with their mother Catherine in Birchington and had private income. Late in 1917 Dora Watson married and became Mrs D. Danielson. She continued to work at Quex Park VAD Hospital. Fanny Watson worked a total of 10, 898 hours and Dora Danielson worked 10, 249 hours during their service at 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: circa 1918

Lieutenant-Colonel Robert Watson

Lieutenant-Colonel Robert Watson. One of a set of six unsigned oil paintings on canvas attributed to Giuseppe Chiesa (d 1789), 1769-1771 (c). Lieutenant-Colonel Robert Watson with (from left) grenadiers of the 13th, 11th, 67th, and 3rd Regiments of Foot, their officers, and soldiers of 25th Regiment of Foot, 1769 (c). Robert Watson was lieutenant-colonel of the regiment from 1763 until 1773. Among the guard he is inspecting is a grenadier of the 3rd Regiment of Foot (or the Buffs) [fourth from left] who wears an embroidered cloth grenadier cap even though these were obsolete from 1768. It demonstrates that uniforms could have a ?wearing out? time or that new patterns might be slow to arrive at overseas garrisons. The 25th Regiment of Foot was stationed in Menorca from 6 Jun 1769 until 1775, one of several regiments garrisoned there to maintain British control of this important Mediterranean base, regained from Spain at the end of the Seven Years War in 1763. This series of paintings depicting the 25th Regiment of Foot during its service in Menorca originally belonged to Lord George Lennox, (1737-1805), who was colonel of the regiment 1762-1805. Date: circa 1860
