The Untold Story of Women in the Crimean War

Sunday 10th November


There are many dozens of accounts of the Crimean War but virtually nothing has been written about the heroic women ­ - wives, washerwomen, and unofficial nurses - who followed the British Army to Crimea. This lecture tells their story and that, also, of the devoted French and Russian women nurses who also served.
