About this event

Told through the stories of Lady Clementine Waring, who was awarded a CBE for her war work, and some of the officer patients themselves, this talk will explore how a unique collection of heraldic shields found at a former convalescent home for wounded officers in the Scottish Borders revealed a novel treatment for mental health trauma in the First World War. Follow-up after the War shows that many recovered well from their experiences and went on to lead successful lives. The talk will be illustrated with personal photographs and recollections, as well as the shields themselves, and some surprising discoveries!

Registration 5:30 pm, Lecture commences at 6 pm, Drinks and Canapés 7 pm to 8 pm
