Erskine Hospital project TV feature

Forces TV has a short feature on the current Erskine Hospital project to catalogue a series of objects found recently in the premises, including a register of inmates from its opening in 1916 (see http://britishgenes.blogspot.co.uk/2015/11/erskine-hospital-archive-to-be.html). The hospital was founded in 1916 to help treat soldiers requiring specialist treatment, including amputations and the pioneering use of artificial limbs.
