A new acquisition

We seem to be getting lucky at the moment with finding new photos that we have never seen before Here’s the first and I shall post the other up when I receive it. I purchased this photo about a month ago. This shows the AAGB’s first public parade in 1940. A mix of Surgical units, First Aid Posts and Ambulances are seen here lined up along the west side of Grosvenor Gardens. The AAGB were inspected here by the Minister of Health who gave a speech thanking those who donated to the AAGB and wishing them luck in the work which they were setting out to do. An interesting point to note is the air raid shelters tat were built in the gardens, now but a distant memory!UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_910eWatermarked
