online resource
posted on 2024-01-12, 09:30 authored by Lest We Forget Project Team

Batchie (Bessie) Griffiths from Llandovery served as a VAD General Services clerk at Catterick Camp Military Hospital from February 1918 to February 1919. She left two autograph books signed by fellow VADs, patients and staff at the camp. Some of these can be identified (in this autograph book, VADs Ethel Maud Burdon and Dorothy Whettam, Grace Darling Doran who may or may not have been a VAD) but others only signed with their initials.
