Everybody's Darling: The First World War Nurse

2 May - 11 July, FREE

Everybody's Darling WW1 Nurses ExhibitionDuring the First World War thousands of women served as nurses. While many assisted in hospitals at home, others worked close to the battlefields. In fact nurses were closer to the front-line than in any previous conflict. For many of the privileged young women who became nurses the work was a huge culture shock.

The nurses made a great and lasting impression and commanded great respect.

They provided vital skills and fulfilled an essential role. Many also risked and sometimes lost their lives. Their contribution, however, has often been overshadowed by the events on the battlefields themselves.

'Everybody's Darling' presents a series of artefacts, prints, illustrations and hands-on elements, allowing visitors to explore and discover more about the experiences of the nurses themselves and the organisations in which they served.
