I first met Jacques Fournier at Royaumont Abbey, 50 kilometers North of Paris, in March 2014 while we were filming our presentation. His enthusiasm and devotion to remembering the work of the Scottish Womens’ Hospitals (SWH) in France was quickly apparent, as was his eagerness to find out more on the subject and, in particular, the work of the Girton and Newnham unit at Troyes.
Over the past year Jacques and I have been exchanging documents, photographs and personal details of the women who served at the hospital in Troyes
Jacques has also been heavily involved in this years exhibition at Troyes. An event organised by Francis Trailleur. We wish Jacques every success in his presentation on the SWH at this event and hope it is well supported as he has put much effort into researching and understanding the roll of the SWH at Troyes in 1915. We look forward to seeing you all in Troyes this May.
