We are grateful to Dr Hazard, of the School of History, University College Dublin, for providing us with this recording for our podcast which relates to a unique collection of letters written by Loreto Sisters during the Spanish Civil War. Their Irish Mother Provincial, Mother Baptist Gibney and some of the Loreto Sisters in Spain, were British passport holders. He discusses how the British embassy in Madrid, the Royal Navy;and the Scottish Ambulance Unit helped the Loreto Sisters to organise their evacuation from the Spanish capital.

Dr Hazard was assisted with some of the research for this article with a grant from ECHA.
