The Royal Hospital Celebrates International Nurses' Day

12th May 2019

Chelsea Pensioners, staff & volunteers at the Royal Hospital joined nurses & carers from the Margaret Thatcher Infirmary to celebrate International Nurses' Day.

Following their recent award of a Platinum accreditation for end of life care from the Gold Standard Framework, staff from the MTI were in good spirits this week as they came together in recognition of their exemplary work over the past year.

Taking the opportunity to enjoy a selection of cakes and refreshments, they were joined by Governor of the Royal Hospital, General Sir Adrian Bradshaw, who took the chance to thank the team for their "hard work and committed dedication".

A number of Chelsea Pensioners also joined the celebrations and very much enjoyed posing for photos with the team.

VJ Day - letters from a POW Pensioner

2020 marks the 75th anniversary of Victory over Japan, or VJ, Day. On 15 August 1945, Imperial Japan surrendered, effectively bringing the conflict to an end. To commemorate this significant year in the legacy of the Second World War, we have explored our collections and the stories behind some of the artefacts that relate to war with Japan.
