On the CEFSG you said:

The hospital did have a War Diary but it is in New Zealand. 

 

There are two members here that I know of that are located in NZ that may be able to assist.

There may be more.

 

I have the same issue with access to the NZ war diaries, as it does not appear that you can get them online. It appears that you can order a copy.

Graham,

  Searching the Register of the Royal Red Cross, and selecting 'Canadian' and 'Colonial' gives 64 women who probably came from Canada. https://www.findmypast.co.uk/search/results?datasetname=register+of+the+royal+red+cross%2c+1883-1994&keywords=canadian+colonial  

   Searching only using 'Canadian' gives more results but it is possible many of these women did not come from Canada.  https://www.findmypast.co.uk/search/results?datasetname=register+of+the+royal+red+cross%2c+1883-1994&keywords=canadian

 

Regards,

Thank you for your replies.  I understand the NZ war diaries are in the process of being digitised.

Thanks for the links.  I have been working my way through the Canadian service records which are a great resource.  I will have a look at the Register of the Royal Red Cross.

You might be pleased to read that when I did some research on behalf of a Vancouver Islander, for his Canadian relative's Canadian wife, who, after she married in Norfolk, England, was a nurse while her husband served as a Doctor with RAMC, that her Medal Roll showed all of the UK hospitals that she served in !

Yes, they are on Ancestry UK. I found mine among the Canadian VAD (Voluntary Aid Detachment) Lists.
