Just had 100s of old family pictures & slides handed over to me & WW1 medals.

The pictures Date from around 1900 to 1975.

Most are from England & Scotland but some are from early wars abroad some where.

I will scan them all as & when i get time then upload some to challenge us all.

Temple Newsam – Auxiliary Military Hospital.
The south wing was converted into a hospital on 29th October 1914. Initially it received Belgian soldiers. It was closed 23 November 1917 – it had cared for 617 patients. Lady Dorothy Wood was the chatelaine.
