Remembered in new Edinburgh exhibition

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-35351778

Finally,  we in Scotland have something to shout about with regards to celebrating the works of the Scottish Women’s Hospitals.  The John Bellany artwork exhibition at the Scottish Parliament, is indeed a land mark for those of us who have been championing this story.  The documents, photos and information panels fuse naturally with John Bellany’s paintings. These often haunting but very personal images remind us of the causes and effects of war.  This is a well put together exhibition and I am sure will be a huge success.  A massive thank you to all who made this event possible and to those who contributed.  For more details copy and paste the link above.

This short footage at 15.15 in the opening clip tells the story and shows where the hospital was located at Troyes, France. A great deal of work is being done but my good friends Francis Tailleur and Jacques Fournier to remember and persevere the enormous contribution given by the Scottish Women’s Hospital unit that served in Troyes in 1915.  Both these gentlemen have dedicated a staggering amount time and devotion to the memory of these stoic women.

Here is more from Francis Tailleur’s fantastic blog http://chanteloup-centenaire1915-2015.over-blog.com/
