George and Marie's daughters were Nina and Xenia. Just a typo.

Very interesting. I had absolutely no idea that the Grand duchess ran hospitals in Harrogate. For non-Brits on the Forum, Harrogate is a spa town and was something of a health resort at that time.

A hospital of the grand duchess was in Harrogate at the address,   1 Tewit Well Avenue . I have a photo of the grand duchess with some soldiers outside the hospital.

I have a copy of this image (mine's from the Illustrated War News but this saves me scanning!):



I think that's her niece Margarethe of Denmark on the right--she was one of her nurses.

  This photograph appears in Charlotte Zeepvat's The camera and the tsars, page 201. I believe the building has since been demolished, and now the address is a block of flats.
