Veronica Nisbet's WW1 Scrapbook
Veronica Nisbet was a St John Voluntary Aid Detachment Nurse during the First World War. As an artist, Veronica documented her wartime experiences through a series of sketches and cartoons which form the basis of her scrapbook, alongside photographs and newspaper clippings. She captures, from a very personal, and often humorous perspective the endeavours of the endeavours to heal and care for the sick and wounded soldiers by the St John Ambulance Brigade Hospital in Étaples, thus working for the Order’s principle of ‘in the service of humanity’.
