- Subject: PAPWORTH COLONY/INSTITUTION/HALL
I am not sure whether this is the right list to be posting this request to,
but I guess someone will tell me :-)
I have a copy of a newspaper clipping that refers to a Royal visit to
Papworth Colony...the Queen visited every patient etc etc... and Princess
Mary graciously accepted a pendant made by Petty Officer Hall of the Royal
Naval Air Service etc etc....
Can sks tell where and what this place was ? A hospital/institution for
those injured/disabled during the war ? I would also like to put a rough
date on the event (no there is not one on the paper, shame on my ancestors
for not clipping around the date !!).
