Lemnos - 1 Canadian Stationary Hospital

Histoire

Hello

 

Does anyone have a good source of information for this please? Diaries and photographs especially.

 

I have found some references to a Nursing Sister Florence Alexandria Hunter, who apparently made a lot of photographs during her time there. Unfortunately have not yet been able to track any down.

 

Thanks

I have just replied to your query on 3rd Can Stat Hosp thread .

Just google Canadian WW1 War Diaries and get on the Canadian Library and Archives site  ,service files and war diaries all free ,and easy to search instructions .It has the war diaries for most of the Canadian Stationary Hospitals.clearing stations etc,and other stuff.

 

Had a quick google for N/S Florence Alexandria Hunter ,

there was a book written about her by Peter H.H.Ridout called "The Experiences of a Nursing Sister During the Great War",its only 60 pages long with some illustrations,written in 2006 but seems to have sunk without trace Amazon/Abe books are showing no copies available,and no ISBN number, google books give the number of the wrong  similar book .

You are probably better off looking at some of the other Nursing memoirs that are possibly easier to find

 

"Through these Lines" web site looks a good bet for places to look for information.

 

There were Australian and English Hospitals on the island whose  Nurses and Doctors also had diaries and photographs published ,or are deposited  in Libraries or Archives.Australian Archives are also free and contain loads of stuff,including ( Nurses) photographic collections.

 

What exactly is it you are  looking for ?

Found this on the Canadian Library and Archive site.

 

Her marriage to a Major Howard Ridout ,Pay Corp,meant she resigned her Nursing Sister commission in November 1917 and returned to Canada. Previously she had contracted Malaria and  had been Mentioned in Dispatches and awarded the Royal Red Cross both Gazetted.

The book about her “The Experiences of a Nursing Sister During the Great War” was written by a Peter H.H.Ridout,a Toronto Lawyer,born 1925 ,her Son?
