Stories

The Young Carers, Brighton and Hove, looked at the story of the Hospital for Limbless Men. Young Carers are young people that take on a significant caring role for family members that are ill or disabled.

Year 9 students at Hove Park School explored the Indian Hospital story. In addition to visiting the Royal Pavilion, these students also had the chance to meet Davinder Dhillon of the Chattri Memorial Group, who spoke about original letters written by Indian soldiers at the Pavilion. They also met Lalit Kumar Sharma, an Indian illustrator who has worked on a graphic novel about WW1 and has even illustrated the story of the Pavilion Indian hospital.
