Snippet from the Collection:

A short snippet from the museum’s collection: a red cross feeding cup c.1914-18

This  patient Feeding Cup or Invalid Cup was used to help nurse injured Soldiers and Sailors who were bed-bound and could not sit up to feed. The cup is marked with a red cross, the symbol of the British Red Cross.  The Society was formed in the 1870s, and provided assistance to sick and wounded soldiers in wartime.
