Rose Hughes worked in service in a large house before and during the war. Her album includes verses, pictures and autographs of different kinds. Some are dated before the war, mainly light and humorous verses, with later entries consisting of brief inscriptions in French or Flemish. These were probably made by Belgian refugees or wounded soldiers and consist of brief inscriptions in French or Flemish with dates of birth and the place they were wounded.
