FAILSWORTH & WOODHOUSES
WAR COMFORTS SOCIETY IN WW1

December 2020, Oldham Branch Monthly talk
... our first to be given on zoom

In September 1914  the Failsworth sub-division of the Red Cross was formed.
Their remit was to:
(i) provide extra 'Comforts' for East Lancashire soldiers in time of war.
(ii) provide equipment for hospitals at home and field hospitals overseas.
Women all over the country, would gather together, in War Comfort Groups to provide the 'Comforts' which, to 21st century eyes, appear to be the bare essentials.
This is the story of one such group.
