This illustrated presentation by Glennis Zilm will give an overview of Canada’s war time Nursing Sisters, from the first paid nurses to be hired by the Canadian militia in 1885 through the Boer War, World War I and World War II. The main focuses will be on nurses from BC, especially from the Victoria area, and on how nurses have served on the battlefields.
