Description

Mavis Sellers – Nurse Nellie Spindler

Mavis is the founder of the West Riding branch of the WFA and travelled down in December with Chris Page for his talk on Mannock. She tells us “I first became interested in WWI many years ago after a battlefield trip with my son. I met Gordon Ray, USA branch secretary on a Poets tour in 2002 and joined the WFA we have corresponded ever since, and he bet me I couldn’t start a new branch in Yorkshire. Never have a bet with a determined lady! Our branch has being going for seven years. I first heard of Nellie Spindler from a newspaper cutting from Wakefield. I decided it would, with additions, make an interesting talk and so it proved as I was fortunate to meet some of Nellie's descendants, and find from diaries information the family didn't know.”

Site news

The WFA's site is undergoing a major rebuilding programme at the moment. We are moving to a new, faster server, with a new version of the content management system that has powered the site successfully since 2008. We will introduce a slightly different look and feel to that currently.
You may spot the phrase "Warning: Illegal string offset 'active' in .... " on parts of the website. Do not be alarmed! These are simply alerts but they do not constitute a danger to you or your computer. They are the result of a recent (current) server software upgrade that means there is a minor issue when listings are generated.
The website content (and, for the most part, its structure) will be unchanged and is indeed being expanded and improved. Search will be much more able to find the material you want in a site of almost 4,000 articles, and we will make other improvements such as content tagging.
We hope the work will be complete by December 2014.
