Nursing Sister Philips WW1 Photo Album 19 V Part 3

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.

Poem in French, dated 21 August 1915. Part 3
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"

I am looking forward to this. My grandfather served in WWI and received a purple heart. His records were lost in the fire and I am not sure where he received the injury. It might be helpful to someone like me. I figure my grandfather with fingers shot off would not end up in the hospital still look forward to seeing the information she gathered.
