Description

History of Nursing in South Australia

Dora Woods, nee Birks, was born in Adelaide and began training at the Adelaide Children's Hospital in 1909. On completion of training she went to Europe and then to New Zealand, before returning to Australia, to nurse at the Broken Hill Hospital. In 1916 she was called up for nursing duties with the Australian Army Nursing Service. This interview deals with her army nursing experience, mostly in France, and with the period following the end of the war, in London. Dora returned to Australia in 1919.
