During World War 2 Car was at the maternity unit in Shardeloes House, near Amersham. She was great friend of Mrs Tyrwhitt-Drake, who lived there.
Car made a painting of the activity, which is on the back of two of her windmill paintings. Although Car often painted on the back of other paintings, this the only known instance of her using two pieces of paper joined up.
Car was active in the Red Cross during Wold War 1 and working parties prepared bandages and comforts for the troops. This painting shows one of these parties in the studio at The Tithe Barn.
When the supplies were ready they were sent not to any ordinary collection point but to HM The Queen no less, for I have seen a letter from Her Majesty’s equerry thanking the ladies for their latest parcel.
