First World War presentation.

Seeking to correct the myth that those who nursed overseas were all well-bred VADs, ‘Nursing through Shot, Shell and Shell-shock’ looks instead at the dedicated service of professional nurses and doctors as well as the volunteers.

Historian and author, Dr. Viv Newman will focus is women who worked in some of the most horrific conditions in all theatres to succour the wounded and in so doing put their own lives, health and indeed mental health at significant risk.

This talk focuses on a few of the War’s many unsung nursing and medical heroines and explores the physical and emotional cost of their service
Doors will open at 7:00pm, with the presentation starting at 7:30pm. The talk is free although a small donation is encouraged to pay for the running of the branch. There is car parking at the Club which can be accessed via St Anne’s Lane off the Causeway in Godmanchester. Non-WFA members most welcome.
