27.06.14 - Nurses!

Just to show that everything isn't so serious when we are filming! Here Lydia and Tiffany are dressed as VAD nurses for a scene in a WW1 hospital. The Voluntary Aid Detachment nurses were formed in 1909 and formed a huge part of the nursing care during WW1. We were lucky to find the actual building that was used as a hospital in 1917, although there were few original fittings left. We found one old doorway and this nice curved stairway. We are filming for the next 3 days, busy busy busy!
