This web site has been established to recognise the nurses of our military force, past and present.

The information offered on this site was gleaned from photographs, official records, letters, diaries and personal mementos.

I welcome any additional materials that may increase my knowledge of military nursing in New Zealand, and ask that you to contact me if you have anything at all to offer.

As research is ongoing this website will be
updated regularly.

My contact details appear on the Contact page. Please feel free to send me your comments and enquiries as well as any materials concerning
New Zealand military nurses.
