News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

Nurses Convalescent Home

I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, and so sorry if it isn't.

I'm trying to find the location of a WW2 Nurses Convalescent Home run by the joint organisation of the Red Cross and the Order of St John, possibly within cycling distance of Strood. The artist, Evelyn Dunbar, who lived at The Cedars on Strood Hill was a commissioned war artist and in 1941 painted a series of pictures on the contribution made by nurses to the war effort. More on the painting can be read here:

Does anyone know where nurses convalescent homes were? It would be wonderful to find the actual location of the painting, although I suspect there were quite a few rooms with waist high wainscoting and a few paintings hanging on the wall.
Thank you for any suggestions.
