Thames Nurses who served in WWI

Several nurses who trained or later worked at Thames Hospital, served in World War One.

The Treasury now has a list of these nurses and links to further details, including a plaque that was made to commemorate their war efforts.

Wonderful lot of information also available at Sherayl's site on NZ Military Nursing history which includes many rolls and other information. Also at Sooty's webpages.

One of the nurses, CLARA HAWKINS returned from the war and served as Matron at Thames Hospital 1919-1920, Taking over from Miss Wilson (pictured below). A few other mentions at my Thames pages.
