Once again the First World War came to the Nat on Saturday 21st November 2015, when we held the last of our Lottery funded events Meet the Nurse.  Scott Knowles of the Great War Society came along to tell tales of a Tommy’s life in the trenches; dressed in his hospital blues he played the part of a wounded soldier awaiting discharge from Fern Hill Hospital back to life in the trenches. Child visitors were given some very gruesome looking war wounds and face paintings by Lisa Bailey.
