Nursing Sister Philips WW1 Photo Album: L15

This Photo Archive consists of a small autograph album (6.5" by 5.25") kept by Constance (Connie) Philips as a memento of her time serving as a nurse during World War One. 

The majority of the photos and items are from 1915, when she served as a nurse in France and Britain.

The album and all photographs, postcards, and other ephemera contained in the album belong to Karin Armstrong and may not be copied or republished without her written permission. The images will be published on Olive Tree Genealogy with permission.

Each image has been designated an "R" for Recto or a "V" for Verso plus an album page number. Recto is the right-hand side page of a bound book while Verso is the left-hand side page.

I will be posting the entire album and my additional research on the individuals identified in Connie's album over the coming months so please check back frequently to view these historic photos. The easiest way to see what has been published is to click on the topic "Nursing Sister WW1 Photos"

My great Aunt Thersa Jaymot returned to France to nurse the wounded during the war. She was born there but immigrated to the USA to join her family who were already living in the San Francisco-Berkeley area of Northern California. Being French and speaking the language was an asset for her and her Cousin Renee Verbeck who volunteered and served as a driver.

I have no photos of these relatives from WWI and hope the collection has an image of Theresa.
