Travel Vouchers for Relatives

Lady Hohler, Fawkham Manor writes:-

It is not perhaps generally known that men serving in the Merchant Service come under the British Red Cross and St John scheme for assisting relatives (wife, parents, children, brothers and sisters) to obtain a Concession Voucher, which permits them to travel at reduced rates,

In serious or dangerous cases the Red Cross and St John also provides accommodation near the hospital for relatives travelling a long distance. Application should be made to the County Office of the county in which relatives reside.  In Kent this is Lady Hohler, Fawkham Manor, Fawkham, near Dartford (tel: Longfield 2170)
