CRIPPLED CHILDREN WORK FOR THE WOUNDED: TAKING FINISHED HOSPITAL TABLES TO THE DESPATCH-ROOM, AT CHAILEY
Now that all are doing what lies within their power to mitigate the sufferings of the wounded, it seems peculiarly fitting that more than a hundred crippled children should be working industriously at the Arts and Crafts School, \"The Hermitage\", Chailey, Sussex, making crutches, splints, tables and other requisites for the inmates of military hospitals, the strain upon whose resources is inevitably increasing with the constant development of the war. The boys shown in our photograph look healthy and well cared for, as indeed they are, but - they are cripples, and to them, in their useful work, might be applied the memorable lines spoken by Garrick at his Farewell, nearly a century and a half ago: "A fellow-feeling makes one wondrous kind." (Photo be Speel and General).
