WW1 Nurses Hospital Patients Autograph Book.

Large book,over 70 pages, filled with autographs,sentiments,ditties, drawings and poems done by recovering soldiers for a nurse Dolly Fawcett who worked at Greylingwell hospital. Very interesting piece of WW1 history with research possible on the wounded from diffrent regiments and from diffrent corners of the world. A very interesting capture of a slice of time with the soldiers writtings and sentiments being funny, saucy,poignant and sometimes racist. This example has had some damage over time with the front cover adrift but the inside pages have survived intact and in good condition.
