"In all my experience I have never known a place so vital to morale as Talbot House."
General Sir Herbert Plumer - 1928
"The dressing-room ambitiously was turned into the "General's Bedroom", on account of a bed with one real sheet."
Tubby - 1919
"The smallest room of the House (6 feet by 4) held just one bed. But this bed, however, was beyond compare: throughout the war we had one pair of sheets that belonged to it by right (though one sheet must be in the wash)."
Tubby - 1938
"And beyond that again, at the far end of the garden, is the two-storey shed, whence was retrieved in 1915 the worn Carpenters Bench which, from the opening day, has been the altar of Talbot House."
Barclay Baron - 1935
