Paris-Plage - l'Hôtel des Anglais & its Rôle in the Great War
Paris-Plage - l'Hôtel des Anglais & its Rôle in the Great War
A carte postale bearing a view of the Hotel des Anglais at Le Touquet Paris-Plage. It was posted from Le Touquet Paris-Plage on Friday the 2nd. July 1920 to an address in London Road, Southborough, Kent. What the recipient read on the back of the card over 90 years ago (in the same hand as on the front) was as follows: "Le Cactus, Rue de Paris, Le Touquet Paris-Plage, Pas de Calais, France We are here for a few weeks in any case, it depends upon Folkestone House. How glorious if you could come to this part. Will write letter soon, Kind thoughts, .........." (the sender's name was added) The excellent website scarletfinders.co.uk tells us that in the first winter of the Great War, the Duchess of Westminster's Hospital, afterwards No. 1 Red Cross, was opened at the Casino at Le Touquet. A pressing need arose for the housing of wives and close relatives who were allowed to visit wounded men at the hospital. Accordingly the British Red Cross Society opened the Hotel des Anglais in October 1915 as a Red Cross hostel. The hostel was well situated, being within 3 minutes' walk of the hospital. It had two wings connected by long dining rooms, with a shady garden on the edge of the Forest of Le Touquet. The Hotel des Anglais was the first hostel to receive relatives, and it acted as a pioneer for further hostels. It remained open for three years until August 1918. The guests, who were not required to pay for their stay, were very diverse - wealthy people, village shopkeepers, labourers and their wives, suffered together, feared together, hoped together, and helped each other. None needed help more than the wives and mothers and fathers racked by fear and anxiety, prolonged in many cases from week to week, and sometimes for months. For much more fascinating information about the hotel's role in the Great War, please refer to scarletfinders.co.uk So what else happened on the day that the card was posted? Well, on Friday the 2nd. July 1920, Eliseo Diego was born in Havana. He was regarded by many as one of the greatest poets of the Spanish language. His first collection of poetry, 'In the Dark Hands of Forgetting', was published when he was 22. His best-known works include a collection published five years before he died entitled 'Book of Perhaps and of Who Knows'. Eliseo died of a heart attack on Thursday the 3rd. March 1994 while travelling in Mexico City, and his body was returned to Cuba where he was buried. He lived for 73 years, 8 months and 1 day, or, to put it another way, 26,907 days.
