Rachel Lloyd spent these years in England and Scotland - The letters sent home to family over this time have survived.
They give an interesting insight to wartime in England and nursing, physiotherapy and medical practices during this time.
Oh, I nearly forgot to mention my greatest thrill since I returned – a letter from Winston Churchill! Just before leaving England, in an impulsive moment I wrote him a short note saying, ‘Thank you’. He replied in his own writing “I thank you very much for your letter, which gave me great pleasure. Winston Churchill”. I never imagined mine would get further than the wastepaper basket in the outer office! - Rachel Lloyd's letters 1946
