More photos of patients at Albany Military Hospital

Three more photo’s of soldiers that we’ve found online showing AMH during World War 1. The photo showing soldiers playing cards was published in the Western Mail – Sat 29th May 1915. More detective work for our pupils to work out where in school the photos were taken.
