Letter from Lady Clonbrock (Augusta Caroline Dillon (née Crofton), wife of Luke Gerald Dillon, 4th Baron Clonbrock) to Mrs Budson requesting help in the creation of sub-centres in County Galway for the collection of moss for surgical dressings. The moss was to be used for the treatment of soldiers wounded while fighting with the British army during World War I.
The Irish War Hospital Supply had requested that the collection of moss was to be increased to meet higher demand and Lady Clonbrock was put in charge of the collection in Galway. Lady Clonbrock was a member of the Irish Women’s Association and heavily involved in assisting Irish soldiers during World War I.
