Nursing Sister Philips WW1 Photo Album: Loose Photo

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.

WW1 Loose photo Snap taken outside the hut 1916
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 was a nursing sister in WWI. Her name was Vera Waters Johnston. She may very well be in this album. She married her soldier James Dickson in London in 1918. Vera became the President of the Women’s Canadian Historical Society of Ottawa (now the Historical Society of Ottawa) in the 1940s; James Dickson became Canada's National Forester after the First War. I have a few pics of Vera & Jimmy, so we may be able to make a match. I just love this blog!!!
