Event description

Description

The First World War placed many ordinary women into extraordinary circumstances, on the front line and at home. Their stories resonate with people today; many people’s family histories include First World War nurses. In this special exhibition launch event, we explore the personal stories of 9 nurses whose service scrapbooks are held by the RCN Archive through short talks and a performance by poet Molly Case of new work inspired by these nurses.

Drop in and meet Writer in Residence Molly Case in the library before the event, from 1-3.30pm
