Between the Wars

A committee appointed in the United Kingdom in 1922 advised the elimination of the term ‘shell shock’, pointing out that neurosis in the soldier differed in no way from that in the civilian.

The hospital has continued in the same capacity and was available for the treatment of cases arising during the Second World War.
