Cheshire - Photo of Nurse
« on: Wednesday 17 February 21 20:22 GMT (UK) »
My sister and I have recently inherited a number of family photographs. In one of the albums we found this photograph - its postcard format so I believe most likely to have been taken after 1902. Is anyone on here able to offer any more accurate dates based on the uniform that the nurse is wearing.
Thank you

It looks like She could be wearing a VAD WW1 uniform.

Very like - except didn't they have a red cross on their bibs?  Or was that only some of them?

Wiggy

Edit
 We still wore shoulder buttoning bibs on our Aprons when I was training.  And stiff collars and cuffs. (dark ages that was!)

Some of them did Wiggy but not all of them, I think some where trained nurses and others were volunteers.

Ah ha - thanks - I thought the VAD were volunteers.      ;)   But I catch your drift!   :)

Hope you don't mind, Carra. I couldn't resist giving the nurse a makeover. :)

I still read her books every so often.

Me too, I loved that book, she was a very special lady and suffered her own heartbreak too  :-\
I did a display about her which drew a lot of interest, very satisfying.
