November 18, 2019 General Meeting

November 18, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Yvonne Van Ruskenveld

Women in the military are not a novelty to us but in World War I the only way Canadian women could enlist was as a nursing sister (military nurse). Over 3,000 Canadian women served in this way, some of them at home, others overseas. Those who served close to the front experienced conditions unlike anything they had ever seen or would see again. Yvonne Van Ruskenveld will talk about the “bluebirds” (as the soldiers called them), including some from the Victoria area who died in the line of duty.

(From 6:00pm – 7:00pm we are open for members and guests who wish to do research and/or participate in our round table sessions.)
