Overview
Excerpt from Hospitals and Almshouses of London
The pensioners - to the number of over 500 - live as in barracks, in long dormitories in the east and west wings, each having a little cubicle to himself, labelled with the name, rank, and regiment of the occupant. On the anniversary of King Charles's birthday his statue, by Grinling Gibbons, in the quadrangle, is decorated with oak leaves, and the pensioners wear sprays of the leaves and receive double rations.
The public are admitted (free) to the hospital on week-days, between the hours of 10 and in the morning, and and 7 in the afternoon. Application to view the hall and the chapel should be made to the custodian on duty in the vestibule, a bemedalled veteran who will tell the visitor far more about the hospital than can be touched upon in this notice.
The gardens, which are open throughout the year, have, on the north side, a number of guns, howitzers, and mortars among them being some taken at Waterloo and a German gun captured in the late war.
