White cotton tablecloth with a crocheted border. Embroidered in white cotton thread with the signatures of patients and staff at the Welsh Metropolitan War Hospital in 1917. From 1915-1919, the Cardiff City Mental Hospital was taken over by the military and became known as the Welsh Metropolitan War Hospital. The signatures embroidered on the tablecloth include Lieutenant-Colonel Edwin Goodall (the former First Medical Superintendant of the hospital who enlisted with the Royal Army Medical Corps during the war) and Matron Florence Raynes who was in charge of all the nursing staff.
