War 1941

It is difficult to gauge the impact of World War 2 on patients in Craig-y-nos though it must have added another level of stress for both patients and family.

This 1941 entry in Agnes Holden’s album is one of rare references to it:”Let’s pray that this dreadful war will soon end and ask God for help for our allies to win.”

Agnes died in 1942 and this album is in the possession of her daughter.
