Charlotte finds out that her father has shell shock. , Shell shock is a type of illness that happens in battle when soilders are on the front line for too long. It can happen when your buried or cut open by shell fragments.
WELCOME TO THE HOSPITAL!!!
They'll drown in them low lying trenches! Stretcher bearers! Get them to the church! There's a stone floor!
Don't worry hon, he's only got shell shock, like your father.
Some soilders have La Grippe, or the flu. 3 Days of aches and chills. Which gives you a high fever.
The war is over and the ANZACS are coming home. After 4 years of fighting, it's a wonderful time.
The war is over!!!!!!
Her Uncle Donald comes home from the war! The house was bought by Uncle Donald and Charlotte's mother. Uncles room is always made and ready for him.
Charlotte starts at Dr Barnes dispensary. She dresses crushed fingers, ringworm, ulcers and then strangely, a man that was drowning in the inside. Dr Barnes gets a scapel and out flows three basins of frothy liquid.
