Netley Hospital 1966 - 1978

After demolition of the main hospital building the work continued in "D" Block (Victoria House), the original Victorian Mental Asylum and "E" Block (Albert House). Netley was the centre for treating drug, alcohol and psychiatric cases in the Army and Navy and both Army and Navy staff worked here until 1978.

Extracts from "Military Psychiatry In Peace And War" by C. Stanford Read  (1920)who was in charge of D Block for some time in WWI
