Sister Alice McHardy QAIMNS(R)

Alice McHardy volunteered for the QAIMNS Reserve between the wars when she was already qualified as a State Registered Nurse and working in Liverpool. She was one of many professional nurses recruited into the QAIMNS Reserve when it was clear that a second war was likely and that a corps of trained nurses would be needed.

Her family have her photographs, her diary, and some audio and video tapes, which collectively form a detailed and colourful record of her service life, and her subsequent career as a nurse in Africa and a sister tutor on the Isle of Man.
