Discover the stories of fun, friendship and romance that offered a brief respite from the frontlines for injured soldiers sent to recover at Hartlebury Castle Hospital in a new exhibition, A Happy Convalescence.

Meet the determined Worcestershire women who nursed them back to health including the story of the Gibbons sisters, Margaret and Frances who organised, ran and nursed Hartlebury VAD Hospital from 1915 until the end of the war.
