Synopsis

A History of the Royal Hospital Chelsea looks at the hospital's beginnings, with its Royal patronage and heritage which dates back to King Charles ll in 1682\. It then goes on to look at some of the characters who have been In Pensioners at the hospital over the centuries, as well as some of the individuals who have been buried in the Hospital's grounds. This includes the ashes of the ex British Prime Minister, Baroness Margaret Thatcher and her husband, Sir Dennis Thatcher.



The Hospital survived both the First and Second World Wars, although it did not escape totally unscathed, suffering both damage and loss of life at the hands of German aircraft. There is an in depth look at the hospital's governors, from the very first one, Colonel Sir Thomas Ogle (1686 - 1702), up until the present time with General Sir Redmond Watt, KCB, KCVO, CBE, DL (2011 - to present - 2017). The book also looks in some detail at a few of those who currently live and work at the hospital (2017).

Stephen and Tanya Wynn have been together for the last fifteen years. Initially their shared interest was that of their four German Shepherd dogs, but when Stephen caught the writing bug in 2010, Tanya was a big influence on his first book: Two Sons in a Warzone - Afghanistan: The True Story of a Father's Conflict. Stephen kept a diary whilst his sons were both serving in Afghanistan during 2008\. It remained a diary until Tanya persuaded him to turn it in to a book. This is their second book they have written together, the first effort being, Women in the Great War, which was published in 2017\. When they are not busy writing, they can be found out walking their dogs early each morning when most sensible people are still fast asleep. Stephen and Tanya now have another common interest.
