History of Nursing in South Australia

Kathleen Turner, nee Conway, and Enid Cherry were both Adelaide-born nurses who served overseas during the First World War. The brief interview about their experiences was recorded on Anzac Day at the nursing home in which Mrs Turner lived. She had travelled to England in 1915 to join the British Army Nursing Service, served in the Middle East, and married an English airman. Miss Cherry received her call to the Australian Army Nursing Service in 1917, served in the Middle East and in Albany, Western Australia during the influenza epidemic.
