a British Christian organization formed after World War I to encourage friendship and kindness in society. It developed from a club formed by a group of British soldiers in Belgium in 1915, in a building they called Talbot House, after Gordon Talbot, who was killed that year and was the brother of one of the members. The name Toc H comes from the former code in telegraphy for the letters T and H, standing for Talbot House.
