Patients in the Mess Room, Quex Park

Belgian Patients in the Mess Room, Quex Park. The Mess Room was situated in the Winter Garden, a large conservatory situated between Quex House and the Museum buildings. The man serving food on the left may be Camille Van Dyck, a Belgian soldier who remained at Quex for the duration of the war and worked as a hospital orderly. He had suffered the loss of his speech through shock and his home was in occupied Belgium. The man just behind his left shoulder is Oscar Van Audenhove, the Belgian patients who painted the background to a diorama in the B Ward Gallery. 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
