In the Footsteps of Florence Nightingale : Memoirs of a QA (Queen Alexandra's Royal Army Nursing Corps) Paperback / softback

Description

Memoirs of a QA (Queen Alexandra's Royal Army Nursing Corps).

Memoir of a military nurse in 1950s and '60s UK, Germany, Chana, Singapore and Malaysia.

When a young northern girl quietly dropped home economics in favour of the three sciences, against her parents' wishes, little did she expect to rise through the ranks of the Queen Alexandra's Royal Army Nursing Corps (the QAs), the nursing branch of the British Army, and follow in the footsteps of Florence Nightingale, to whom the QAs trace their heritage, healing injured soldiers far from home as well as educating and recruiting sisters back in Britain.
