28 Church Walks was on the Red Cross list of auxiliary hospitals as 'Red Cross Hospital, Red Court, Church Walks, Llandudno'.
Mr W G Lecomber handed over his house at Red Court to the Red Cross to be converted into a hospital for wounded soldiers. By 1st January 1915 it was fully equipped and ready to receive patients.
This was a hospital used by the RWF (Royal Welch Fusiliers) and billeted in town and had 25 beds.
Between December 1914 and August 1914 (when RWF left the town) 393 soldiers were treated at the Red Court as in-patients and 'many thousands' attended as out patients.
Red Court then started receiving soldiers wounded overseas in September 1915. It was attached to First Western General Hospital, Fazakerly, Liverpool presumably as an overflow facility. Treatment was administered by the RAMC (Royal Army Medical Corps., BRCS (British Red Cross Society) and the Llandudno (Carnarvon 12) V.A.D. (Voluntary Aid Detachment). The VAD were responsible for some of the nursing, cleaning,cooking, and for transferring the wounded soldiers from the railway station to Red Court.
When the Balmoral Hospital opened in December 1915 Red Court closed.
