Toc H Banners
Toc H was founded by a British army chaplain during the First World War to provide support for soldiers at a rest centre in Poperinge, Belgium.
After the war the idea of providing support and encouragement to individuals and communities was brought back to Britain and the organisation grew to have branches in countries all over the world.
At one time most of these branches had a Toc H banner and the banners that have survived in the possession of Toc H’s headquarters in Buckinghamshire have now been passed to the National Needlework Archive.
It is hoped that with the help of Toc H members and friends, a history of these banners and other Toc H textiles can be compiled.
If anyone has information about textiles in Toc H branches we would be very pleased to hear from them.
