June this years marks the Centenary of the opening of the Soldiers Block at Queen Mary Hospital in Hanmer Springs for the recovery of 'Soldiers of the Dominion'. The Hurunui District Council is marking the occasion with a weekend long event which includes a period ball, a commemoration ceremony, tours of the hospital and grounds, plus many other events. We are creating a multimedia presentation, and display boards at the hospital to tell the story of its beginnings. We are currently looking for photos and stories of staff and patients who went to Queen Mary Hospital between 1916 and 1922, or who went to the Red Cross Hospital at The Lodge in Hanmer in 1915. If you have come across any in your research and are able to share these, please contact Emily Anderson firstname.lastname@example.org or 021 889969.
