Secret scrapbook of a Red Cross nurse

The East Front of Melford Hall, Suffolk

'November 1913 saw the start of the London "season”,' says Trudi Jeffs, who volunteers at Melford Hall, Suffolk​.

'Making her debut into polite society that year was 18 year-old Stephanie Hyde Parker, only daughter of The Rev. Sir William and Lady Hyde Parker of Melford Hall.
 
'Stephanie had a beautiful red, leather-bound book, with her initials stamped in gold on the cover. This was probably a gift from her proud parents and in it she recorded the events she attended. 
 
'As the storm clouds of war began to gather, the tone of the book became more serious, detailing friends who are serving in the forces and her life as a Red Cross Nurse.’
