Upstairs, Downstairs
The war years 1

Most of the Eaton Place servants did their bit for the war effort – Edward enlisted, Ruby made ammunition, Hudson was a special constable and Rose was a clippy on the buses.

Upstairs did their bit too. Shocked by her experience of seeing a hospital train arriving at Charing Cross, Georgina enrolled as a nurse. Her friend below stairs, Daisy, was always there to listen to her sobering experiences. Georgina was later transferred to a front-line hospital where, by coincidence, she recognised the badly injured James Bellamy amongst the casualties.
