Malnourished Children Work Out!

Bushy Park is one of the larger Royal Parks and lies immediately north of Hampton Court Palace. Between the wars it was home to the King's Canadian School - a camp school for children suffering from anaemia and malnutrition. In the postcard, the children are seen tending the garden.

During the First World War, the Royal Canadian Hospital was based there and in the Second World War, Eisenhower planned the D-Day landings there in the Surpreme Headquarters Allied Expeditionary Force. The headquarters of the US Eighth Air Force was also based in Bushy Park.
