Hi all
I have available a page by page scanned copy of an autograph book kept by a family member whilst she was nursing the injured at West Ham Red Cross Hospital, Basingstoke and some photos - no names on them - of her patients.
I am happy to send scanned copies to any one with rellies in the list below. The list is not alphabetic nor date order - it is page by page and easier for me to recover them that way. Copyright for these remains mine but am happy to 'gift' them to living rellies. The list below is as presented and spelt in the book!!! Some entries don't say any more than a name and place others have drawings and text.
Have a look and pm me if you find a rellie? (wish I could type with more than 2 fingers!!!)

Brilliant stuff. I ought to get you to look up a few of mine !! Lol I have done them .

Look I think I will leave the info you offer on here, then if some one wants the copy of the page where their person has written in the book I have they can also see the info you have provided.
I am offering these to people as i know much it would mean to me to have some thing written (albeit a scan copy) by one of my rellies who served. To keep it just here is a waste?
Cheers

hiya nigel
there were two l.keylocks,who served in ww1,both were in the ASC and both came from southampton
M/288472 leonard,albert keylock
ASC
37 london rd,andover

03918 lionel keylock
ASC

is it possible,that some of these men,are serving at the hospital,rather than being patients.

regarding m.nutchins+m.flair,i can find anyone by these names,could they be m.fair+m hutchins
