The Americans at Frenchay Hospital...





USO shows, concerts and movies for patients broke the tension of war and the boredom of long convalescences.






<< Patients wait patiently in the rain for the Bob Hope show to arrive at Frenchay.



Facing the camera, near the centre of this picture, sits Bertha Luckstein.





When he finally came, Bob captured everyone's heart by dancing with Dottie Dewyze. Thrills all round.


The above photograph and text were included in a type-written booklet entitled "Frenchay Revisited 1942-1992"; and produced in 1992 by Lois White Monroe, American Red Cross, 298th General Hospital.
