Nurses waiting to see the Queen

Nurses sitting in a garden under a sunshade. According to the photograph's original caption they are waiting to meet Queen Mary. Their uniforms are all in pristine condition. It is a happy and relaxed scene.

 

Nursing was one of the few jobs that allowed women to play an active role in the war.
