Medical character:
? 1915 - 1918

Convalescent (military)
During WW1 Hollington House, belonging to Mrs Teichman, was obtained by the Kent/66 Voluntary Aid Detachment (V.A.D.) for use as an auxiliary hospital.

Hollington House Auxiliary Hospital was the third  to be opened by the Detachment, who then had a total of 125 beds.

The Hospital presumably closed in 1918.

Unfortunately we can find little information on this auxiliary hospital.
