Comments

Alison (who typed up the R E Jones diary) thinks this lady may be Gwen Flower:

The second & single G / Gwen might be Miss G Flower a Nursing Sister who’d be roughly the right age? There is a request written on back of pink cigarette packet paper that reads:

I/C Workshop

Would like Clinic Medicine Chest fixed to the wall.

With thanks.
I/C Clinic A1
