QARANC Association PhD Scholarship

QARANC Logo
The QARANC Association PhD Scholarship is managed by the QARANC Association Heritage and Chattels Committee.

CONTEXT

The Association has a particular interest in the heritage of the Corps with one of the Objects of the Association being, “Fostering esprit de corps, comradeship and the welfare of the corps and preserving its traditions.”, something that is also made clear in the establishment, and the Terms of Reference, of the Heritage and Chattels Committee.

Although much has been written about the history of Army nursing, and many scholars continue to research and write our history, there is a lack of authoritative writing from the perspective of Army nurses themselves. It has been difficult for Army nurses, serving or retired, to gain the necessary skills and standing to be able to write history that is acceptable in academic and scholarly contexts. There are members of the Association who would like the opportunity to gain these skills at Doctoral level, in order to advance the body of knowledge from within Army nursing.

SCHOLARSHIP

The QARANC Association will fully fund a PhD Scholar from within the Association membership to undertake PhD studies at the University of Cardiff commencing October 2019 (or sooner if it suits the person accepted). The main supervisor will be Professor Holly Furneaux of the School of English, Communication and Philosophy, University of Cardiff.

RESEARCH AREA

This project will be the first to research a growing number of nurses’ autograph and scrap-books held in the QARANC archives at the Museum of Military Medicine. Assembled by Army nurses, these works contain inscriptions, verses, original poetry, and sketches by the military personnel gathered within the wards. They typically include humorous cartoons of ward and camp life, landscapes seen from hospital and on campaign, and detailed nature drawings.

Focusing on the First World War the work will draw on the wider QARANC archives, including diaries, journals and notebooks, as well as autograph and scrap-books held in other archives including at the Royal College of Nursing, the Imperial War Museum, and the National Museum of Wales. It will also draw on the nurses’ official service records at the National Archives.

The research will set the autograph and scrap-books in the context of the nurse compiler’s biography, the community of contributors, the specific operational environments and the period of production. This will allow a comparison between these books, highlighting any differences between the characters and the creativity of the nurses who curated these collections, and the nursing, military, and civilian interactions in different wards and hospitals.

It will develop an established field exploring the dynamics of interactions between nurses, doctors, patients and civilian hospital visitors. It will also contribute to an emerging scholarly interest in the creative culture of military hospitals (eg. Reznick, Carden Coyne, Bamji), and will build upon the supervisor’s exploration of the production of soldier art in military hospitals. Work on these previously unexplored materials will enrich our understanding of nurses’ creativity and of gendered and power relationships within military medical culture.

The appointed scholar will have the opportunity to enhance the Museum of Military Medicine’s cataloguing, digitising, and interpretation of these objects and to contribute to museum programming, such as public talks, educational outreach and potentially an exhibition.

APPLICATION PROCESS

Between July and September 2018 the availability of a scholarship will be advertised through the chain of command and Association branches. Anyone interested in applying for the scholarship will need to send the following to the Association General Secretary (QARANC Association, Regimental Headquarters QARANC, Robertson House, Slim Road , CAMBERLEY, GU15 4NP):

  • An up to date Curriculum Vitae,
  • Evidence that they meet the criteria listed above,
  • A piece of academic writing (500 words) outlining their interest in the research topic

Closing date for applications is the 30th September.

The Heritage and Chattels Committee along with Professor Holly Furneaux from the University of Cardiff will shortlist suitable candidates.

Shortlisted candidates will be invited to interview at the University of Cardiff before the end of 2018. The interview panel at Cardiff will comprise the University of Cardiff academic supervisors and at least one representative of the Heritage and Chattels Committee.

The Board of Trustees will confirm which applicant (if any) they are offering a scholarship to and the successful applicant will be invited to apply to the University of Cardiff. If the applicant is successful, the scholar will commence the Postgraduate Research Programme in October 2019 or sooner if the process allows and as may be agreed by the Association and the University.

Funding for the scholar will start when the Postgraduate Research Programme commences.

SUPERVISION

Supervisory meetings will be arranged at the discretion of the scholar and supervisors, but must take place at least once per month. The scholar will have two supervisors, both of whom have expertise in this area of research. In addition, a member of the Heritage & Chattels Committee with research experience, will provide input on the direction and topic of the research to ensure it meets the needs of the Association.

MONITORING PROGRESS

The scholar will be required to follow both the University of Cardiff and the Association monitoring requirements. The QARANC Association requirements are:

  • To present a summary of their research at the Chief Nurse (Army) Symposium (or similar event) each year;
  • To be a member of the QARANC Heritage and Chattels Committee (Ex Officio) and to attend meetings and contribute their research skills to the work of the Committee.

QARANC Association Oral History Project

QARANC Logo

The QARANC Association oral history project is managed by the QARANC Association Heritage and Chattels Committee.

Context

In previous generations nurses wrote letters home and also kept diaries and journals. Although few of these survive, those that exist give interesting insights into military nursing at that time. Some of these have been transcribed and added to our website. The practice of keeping diaries has gradually diminished, and so for more recent events there is little material to generate insights. Equally, there has been little mainstream and detailed research into the nature of army nursing over time, and especially in more recent conflicts. Nurses who might offer insights into military nursing at the time of the formation of the QARANC are a diminishing number, and so there is some urgency to gather their testimonies.

For the project to succeed as a true history there needs to be understanding of what makes an oral history, and the processes that underpin it, including the practical aspects of identifying interviewees, collecting and storing the data, as well as transcribing and archiving. Copyright release will be required so that the histories can be used in the future, and so that data can be shared with others interested in the history of Army nursing.

The key to oral history is the use of a framework. Rather than being restrictive the framework allows data collection to be more conversational and less interrogative, because the person can tell the story, and the interviewer can use the framework to redirect, to review, and to confirm key points. Unlike interview-based research which is usually anonymised and aggregated, oral history remains attached to the person. This requires informed consent and for those involved in the project to abide by ethical principles.

Workshops

For us to be able to collect oral histories from both old and younger members of the Corps we need to have a number of people trained to collect oral histories using the framework we have established, and to transcribe them using our template.

We will be running two workshops in 2019 to train QARANC Association members. One will be at Robertson House in Camberley, and one (to be confirmed) in Birmingham. If you are interested in learning more about the project or attending a workshop, or if you know of someone you think we should interview, please leave us a message via the Contact page.

The Association joins together in practical friendship all who are serving or have served in the Corps, irrespective of rank, sharing in its record, its achievements, tradition and history. Our Motto is FRIENDSHIP and we try and maintain that through our branches, which organise functions, and events where members can meet up. In all that we do, our natural willingness to help past and present members stems from the tradition and camaraderie that only Army Service life can instil.

There are records of nurses caring for sick and wounded soldiers as far back as the English Civil War1. At this time sick and wounded soldiers were usually cared for by the local population, and often at the expense of the village or town. Parliamentarian forces had the ancient London hospitals (Bridewell, Christ’s, Bethlehem, St Thomas’s, St Bartholomew’s and Sutton’s Hospitals) to support them. In these hospitals nurses cared for sick and wounded soldiers as they would any other patients admitted to their wards.

The first hospital built to support the military was in 1683 at Portsmouth after the campaign in Flanders in the reign of Charles II2. Although this hospital was for sick and wounded soldiers the staff were all civilians. Other than this small hospital the remaining soldiers were still left to be cared for by the civilian population.

During the Seven Years War (1756-1763) a hospital was set up in Portugal with Mrs Sullivan as Matron and a number of British nurses as staff3. During the Peninsular (1807-1814) and Napoleonic (1903-1815) Wars soldiers continued to be looked after by civilian populations. In addition, regiments allowed a number of the wives of soldiers (4-6 per company) to accompany the regiment on campaign. These women helped with cooking and in the upkeep of uniforms as well as providing some basic nursing care. They were not obliged to help the wounded but most did, and some were killed on the battlefields, including Waterloo.

By the time of the Crimean War (1853-1856) medical support was more organised but nursing care was left to orderlies who may have been trained, or who might have been drawn from the regiments taking part in the campaign4. The story of Nightingale has been well documented and requires no further expansion here other than to note two points: firstly, this was the first deployment of any sizeable body of nurses from the UK to support a military campaign overseas; and secondly, that Nightingale remains possibly the only nurse associated with military nursing to have been afforded a “heroic” status that overshadowed the contributions of her colleagues5. The nurses who went out to the Crimea were all civilians who came under the protection of the Army but were not part of it. The formation of the ANS in 1881 enabled the flexible deployment of nurses whilst retaining a chain of command and reporting.

Army Nursing Service
In 1881 the Army Nursing Service (ANS) was formed. Nurses wore military uniform and were employed directly to care for military patients. The ANS, although nominally a military formation was not an established part of the Army and did not sit within any of the directorates of the War Office. Army Nursing sisters served in support of many of the campaigns that took place between the Crimean War and the Boer War.

Princess Christian’s Army Nursing Service (Reserve)
The small number of full time nurses in the Army Nursing Service, was always going to be a problem in a major conflict. In 1897 an Army Nursing Service Reserve was established, run by a committee chaired by Princess Christian, hence it was known as Princess Christian’s Army Nursing Service Reserve (PCANSR). In wartime it came under the direction of the War Office. During the war in South Africa the PCANSR underpinned the employment of some 2000 nurses from all over the world.

Queen Alexandra’s Imperial Military Nursing Service
The experience of the Boer War in South Africa, led to reorganisation of the Army Nursing Service and in 1902 Queen Alexandra’s Imperial Military Nursing Service (QAIMNS) was established, followed by the QAIMNS Reserve in 1908. These nursing services mobilised for duty with the Expeditionary Force, serving through the war years on every front. In World War II, the QAIMNS & QAIMNSR served in every campaign, nursing the sick and wounded and sharing the hazards of warfare. Many nurses lost their lives, and some spent many years as internees.

Territorial Force Nursing Service
The Territorial Force Nursing Service (TFNS) was originally formed to staff the territorial force hospitals at home, and the majority of its members spent their wartime service in the United Kingdom, not only in the 25 territorial hospitals, but also in hundreds of auxiliary units throughout the British Isles. Within a short time they were also employed in the eighteen territorial hospitals abroad, and alongside their QAIMNS colleagues in military hospitals and casualty clearing stations in France, Belgium, Malta, Salonica, Gibraltar, Egypt, Mesopotamia and East Africa.

Territorial Army Nursing Service
The Territorial Army Nursing Service (TANS) was formed in 1920, when the Territorial Force was renamed the Territorial Army. It existed until 1949, when both regular and reserve nurses joined the QARANC. Territorial Army nurses served alongside QAIMNS nurses all over the world, and in all campaigns during WW2.

Queen Alexandra’s Royal Army Nursing Corps
On 1st February 1949 the QAIMNS became Queen Alexandra’s Royal Army Nursing Corps (QARANC). In July 1950 the first non-commissioned ranks were admitted to the Corps, and in 1954 the first nurses to undertake State Registered Nurse training within the Corps successfully passed their examinations. However, the QARANC was still an all-female organisation as male nurses at this point, were members of the Royal Army Medical Corps (RAMC), and it was not until April 1992 that male nurses transferred to the QARANC.
