Royal Army Medical Corps corporal (standing) and officer (seated) in one of the stores of the King George Hospital for wounded soldiers, Stamford Street, London. The King George Hospital was installed in a commandeered warehouse and finally accepted its first patients in May 1915, after strikes had delayed its opening. With 1650 beds (later 1850), it was reputed to be the largest hospital in the United Kingdom.
