I was wondering if anyone would be able to help me with the attached picture.


My Great Grandfather, Captain Kirton Ivor Seager Smith, is the man on the far left and I was interested in any further information anyone could provide with regards to the other people in the picture. I noticed the nurse on the right appears to have a medal attached to her cape?


Thank you in advance,

The nurse on the right is wearing the silver service badge of the QAIMNS on the ribbon. The other nurse appears to be  Nursing Sister of the T.F.N.S. {Territorial Forces Nursing Services}. She has a small silver letter 'T' on the corner of her cape,and there would be a TFNS service badge on a ribbon {just visible} on the other side of her cape.

Do you have a date for this photograph?

Thank you so much! That's fascinating!


I think this may have been taken around 1917?
