Public talk – “From Newcastle Hospital to Buckingham Palace – the First World War Service of Matron Ida Greaves RRC”

As part of Newcastle Museum’s program to commemorate the centenary of the First World War I will be giving an illustrated talk about the war service of Matron Ida Greaves RRC.

When:  3.30pm Sunday 17 August 2014

Where:  Newcastle Museum, Workshop Way, Honeysuckle NSW.  Sandwiched between Civic Station and the waterfront, the Museum is difficult to miss.

How much?   Free of charge

Parking:  Metered parking in Wright Lane, next to the Museum.  Lee Wharf Car Park on Honeysuckle Drive (near Honeysuckle Hotel) is a 2-3 minute walk, and the last time I looked was free at weekends.

Public transport: Get off the train at Civic Station.  Entrance to the Museum is just outside the platform exit coming from the Sydney direction.  Alternatively get off the bus at Civic Station, cross the line via overhead bridge or walk around to the level crossing in Merewether Street.
