Website updated June 2015

WW1 photo gallery updated.

This web site has been established to recognise the nurses of our military force, past and present.

The project on this website for 2015 is to establish a gallery of identified photographs of New Zealand nurses who served during WW1.

As photographs are made available the site will be updated..

The information offered on this site was gleaned from photographs, official records, letters, diaries and personal mementos.

I welcome any additional materials that may increase the history of military nursing in New Zealand, and ask you to contact me if you have anything at all to share. As research is ongoing this website will be updated regularly.

My contact details appear on the Contact page. Please feel free to send me your comments and enquiries as well as any materials concerning
New Zealand military nurses.
