Echoes of War

Saturday 25 October – Sunday 26 April
The Potteries Museum & Art Gallery

The First World War changed attitudes towards class and gender and many other aspects of society forever. It left an estimated 16 million people dead and thousands more mentally and physically scarred.

This exhibition looks at the work of the nursing units and what happened to soldiers once they were injured. This will include the role of the Voluntary Aid Detachments, a team of volunteer nurses trained by the Red Cross and the Order of St John’s established in 1909.

The exhibition will also focus on the work of Lady Millicent, the Duchess of Sutherland who raised funds to purchase an ambulance and send nursing staff to the front line.
