British Military Nurses from 1875 - websites of interest

British Military Nurses from 1875 by Sue Light is an absolute must for anyone interested in Military Nurses.

As part of her work she has created an index of those who served in the Scottish Women's Hospital during the First World War:


On the following pages are the names of women who served with the various units of the Scottish Women's Hospital during the Great War. These transcriptions are taken from original lists held at the Imperial War Museum and were originally published in early 1920. The information was supplied by the individual units, and has been combined here to form one list in alphabetical order of surnames. The units that made up the Scottish Women's Hospital were:

Abbaye de Royaumont
Ajaccio, Corsica
America Unit
Calais Contingent
Canteen units at Creil, Crepy-en-Valois and Favresse
Girton and Newnham Unit
London Units
Sallanches, Haute Savoie
Units in Serbia during the early days of the war, which are given in the lists as:

There is no history of the Scottish Women's Hospital on this site at present, and the lists have been produced entirely as an aid to identifying women who served during the Great War. There is much information to be found on the internet and in books about the work of the SWH, but it is anticipated that some information will be added here in the future, including more transcriptions of original documents.
