Kathleen Preece's Autograph Book

Kathleen Preece's Autograph Book

This little book was found among the belongings of a childless couple when their house in North Bradley, Wiltshire, England was cleared after their deaths. Where there is enough information, Life Stories of people named in the book have been collected in this community. The inscription inside the cover of the Autograph Book suggests Kathleen was given the book as a Christmas gift in 1911. Included in it are a number of entries from her friends and some watercolours of flowers, dated before and during wartime (some are undated). There are also several where the person identifies themselves as a serving soldier, also her brother George, serving in the Royal Marine Light Infantry – each of these has a Life Story in this community. Redlands No.4 War Hospital is clearly named on two entries, suggesting Kathleen volunteered there before the QMAAC was formed in early 1917. The hospital took over the buildings of Redlands School in 1915. Please see the Life Stories of Kathleen Preece and her husband, Ivor Holloway for more details of their lives.
