The Wounded Return

Less than a month after the first troops left from London Road Railway Station, wounded men were returning from the Western Front. Voluntary Aid Detachment Nurses assisted the Royal Army Medical Corps in caring for the men. Volunteer drivers took the casualties to the Fifth Northern General Hospital, on the site of what is now the University of Leicester.
