Silver Wr Badges

7 posts in this topic

If any one is interested in Nurses, during WW1, there is a book of Silver War Badges,

that is just for Nurses, first name is Florence Hall Q.M.A.A.C. 380 pages.

Didn't think Nurses would need a Silver War Badge.

Pardon my ignorance, but I didn't think that there were nurses in the QMAAC?? Are there other services listed that are not QMAAC?

cheers

The SWB volume for nurses (WO29/3253) is now online with all the others at Ancestry, and searchable with original images. I assume all the other women's services are as well
