Nurses of the South West Talks

This International Nurses Day, hear the incredible stories of some of the South West's unsung WWI heroes from descendants and historians.

Celebrate International Nurses Day with a unique experience this year.
Hear local author, Jeffrey Peirce, discuss his mission to research and honour the wartime nurses of the South West, which has unearthed countless incredible stories. These will be brought to life by descendants of the nurses, who will share their perspectives on these impressive women. The presentations will end with a Question & Answer session.
Thousands of women served as nurses in the first World War, working tirelessly to save lives at great risk to themselves. Their stories, full of heartache and heroism, tragedy and triumph, are seldom heard, and their service is seldom commemorated. Jeff’s work aims to change this by broadcasting them to as large an audience as possible.
The Museum will also be displaying collection items that illustrate the stories of our nurses.
Afternoon tea will be provided at this free event.
