Nurses and their patients
Nurse and patients in the New Zealand Stationary Hospital, Wisques, France.

Some women worked as nurses during the First World War. They were brave and worked long hours close to the fighting. The nurses did not have many things to help them do their work.
Here are some of the other important jobs that women did at home to help.
