I am a new member looking for an article in Pennant no 42 which is not on the NHS website on Lawrence King Harman and Moorfields House in Nailsea by Roger Smallwood. The reason being that my Grandmother had an association with Lady Geraldine King Harman and just trying to link up the dates. They were close in age and I wonder if they were friends? Any information might help. I do know that Lady Geraldine was in the Territorial Nursing force between 1914 and 1920. Many Thanks for any assistance.
Sadly, my own Pennant collection appears to end at No 40 - but there is a copy of No 42 in the Bristol Archives It might be worth contacting them to see if they can send you the article you are looking for. There is an entry on the 1939 Register for Geraldine King HARMAN at Ouse Manor, Bedfordshire which her widowed mother, Constance. Her father had died earlier that year.
This also mentions her involvement with Nursing which you already know about - Is this where she had a connection with your relation? She was a member of the Territorial Force Nursing Service and received a medal after WW1. Her rank "Special Military Probationer" (S M P)
Thanks Pat that is a shame but the Bristol Archives are helpful I will contact them about it. Yes she may have had a connection through Nursing but not entirely sure. She had TB and was in Chard Sanatorium for a while. I feel they may have been friends in Nailsea perhaps through Holy Trinity Church. Probably will stay a mystery Cheers!
