Description

Victoria Barracks, Melbourne, Vic. 1951. Portrait of Sister Betty Crocker, Royal Australian Army Nursing Corps (RAANC), modelling the first RAANC uniform, worn with black stockings, black lace up shoes, black leather gloves and a black shoulder strap handbag. Tailored in Adelaide, this particular uniform was the very first one made to the new pattern and issued for the new RAANC (as distinct from its predecessor the Royal Australian Army Nursing Service). It was issued to Sister Crocker, the first Sister to enlist for Korea in South Australia. (Donor B. Lawrence)
