Embroidery by WWI patient Albert Campbell

Embroidery work done by Albert Campbell, whilst in hospital due to severe injuries sustained in France in 1917. While many people tend to associate embroidery and needlework with women, men are also known to pick up the needle and thread particularly in times of war. In the case of Albert Campbell, this embroidery was used as rehabilitation therapy during his long convalescence in military hospital.
