Elsie Knocker, a nurse in WW1

Hello, my name is Stuart Witts, I am a member of The Western Front Association (Wiltshire branch).

I attended a lecture on the Angels of Pervyse in November 2014. Elsie Knocker and Mairi Chisholm were both nurses at Pervyse, Belgium during WW1. I was fortunate to visit cellar house 1 in Pervyse last November, the owner of the house had a post card of the Hollist Arms pub, Lodsworth. I am lead to believe Elsie Knocker had a connection to this pub. I am not too sure if it was before  or after the Great War.

Should you have any information on this story, I would be very keen indeed to hear from you. I do have photos of the cellar in the house at Pervyse that they used as a First Aid station.

Further information the story on the ‘Angels of Pervyse’ can be found on this link www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-28609597

I look forward to hearing from you.
Best Regards
Stuart Witts
