The Nursing Memorial Appeal

The Nursing Memorial Appeal

During the First and Second World Wars at least 1,700 nurses gave their lives in the service of their country. Their sacrifice has never been properly recognised.

While the troops they cared for valued them very highly, the nurses received very little political and public recognition for their wartime work.

So in 2011 the Nursing Memorial Appeal Committee was established to put this right. Here's what they aim to do – with your help and support – to ensure their names are known and never forgotten.
