The Church of St. Luke
Royal Haslar An Appreciation
by Eric C. Birbeck MVO

1963 and St. Lukes Church Haslar stood at the centre of the Royal Naval Hospital Haslar, roofless and ravaged by death watch beetle and with no defined budget for repairs and restoration. Two centuries earlier St. Luke's, due to an oversight was the last building to be completed and opened in 1762, thus completing the building of Royal Hospital Haslar, the first naval hospital in the United Kingdom. This booklet explains the story behind St. Luke's being finally built in 1762, the transportation of the church clock from London and two centuries later the involvement of Sir John Betjeman in the eventual restoration of the church.

by Major-General JOHN B. RICHARDSON Colonel Commander, Royal Artillery Edited by Eric C. Birbeck MVO

This enthralling little book describes the reflective return to the Royal Hospital Haslar in 1916, by the distinguished Military son of an eminent Naval Surgeon and naturalist some eighty years after he was first brought to Haslar as a child. In his own words Richardson describes both his visit and childhood memories of life in a busy Victorian hospital. Edited and published with photographs of the time, some of which have not been seen for many years this book will make interesting reading for anyone who has a love for this fine hospital.
