Mrs Mabel St. Clair Stobart (1862 - 1954). This was found under the stairs behind the lift shaft at Belgrave Square. We do not know how we came to have it, but we are so happy to have it back out on display again. She was a formidable and very brave lady.
Founder of the Women's Sick and Wounded Convoy Corps (1912) and the Women's National Service League (1914) was a supporter of women's suffrage before the First World War.
When the First World War broke out she set up a field hospital in Belgium, risking capture by the advancing German forces. Subsequently, with a commissioned rank of major, she served on the Balkan Front where she commanded the Serbian Relief Fund's Front Line Field Hospital. She and her medical staff accompanied the Serbian Army's retreat through the Albanian mountains.
