  • A late C19th century oak tray with a carved gallery, we believe from WWI or perhaps just after, as the handles are clearly marked with the burning torch of St. Dunstan's Hostel for Blind Soldiers and Sailors, a well known charity based near Regent's Park, London, where ex-servicemen would go after they had received hospital treatment to ‘learn to be blind’. A place first of it's kind in Britain. The emphasis of the organisation was training, which often involved varying forms of technology that enabled the men to utilise their skills. This included adapted typewriters and telephones, with standardised assessments to encourage employment. St Dunstan’s often found itself in the papers and garned great support from the wider British public.
