Toc H

Toc H. The movement was founded in 1915 when Revd Philip (‘Tubby’) Clayton acquired a house in Poperinghe, near Ypres, as a rest-home for troops. It was called Talbot House, after Gilbert Talbot, son of the bishop of Winchester, who was killed in action, and was known by its Morse-code initials. Based upon Christian and charitable principles, the movement received strong support from Edward, prince of Wales, was given a royal charter in 1922, and had more than 1,000 branches throughout Britain and the empire. Its symbol was a lamp.
