Armistice Day 2020: Charlton Lane Hospital Poppy Display

November 11, 2020

In recognition of Armistice Day 2020, patients and staff from Mulberry Ward at Charlton Lane Hospital spent yesterday afternoon making poppies and reminiscing.

Patients shared stories of parents and relatives who went to fight for our country, remembering those who didn’t return with a great sense of pride.

We also heard stories from patients of what life was like during the war, including being sent away to live with families who welcomed them in and made them feel at home, rationing, and the excitement of making a Victoria sponge once enough butter had been collected over a number of weeks. They also recounted the joyous celebrations of the war ending.

Both our patients and colleagues enjoyed a reflective afternoon, thinking of the heroes who fought in the war to save our country, and for this, we are all thankful.
