8 thoughts on “10 Lesser Known Wartime Nurses”

  1. There have of course been women serving as wartime nurses from several countries in conflicts all over the world. One of my own most delightful discoveries was a large room in Dunrobin Castle, north of Inverness, Scotland, dedicated to nursing during WWI. The Earl of Sutherland, lord of the castle, was in the army himself, and his wife was an active supporter of nursing education. She opened the castle in 1915 for use as a naval hospital. It’s a fascinating exhibition to visit for both the display of clothing and medical materials and the historical documents about nursing and field hospitals in the early 20th century.

    1. It is fascinating. Hard enough to do it today, with modern clothes and medicine. Imagine having to do this without little/no medicine and either a corset or a hoop skirt. Thanks for sharing the info about Dunrobin Castle.


    1. Glad you liked it. It was interesting to see that some of the nurses in more recent conflicts are men. (I knew that but had not really thought of it in this type of context.)
