BOOK - WWI Nursing Sisters of Old Durham County
By Sherrell Leetooze
Published by Lynn Michael-John Associates, Bowmanville, 2014

Softcover... 30.00 (C$)

The writing of WWl Nursing Sisters of Old Durham County was inspired by the centennial of the beginning of the First World War which began in August, 1914. No one wants to think about war, but it is inevitable if we are to keep the memory of those who served, and to honour their commitment to a peaceful future. So, author Sher Leetooze looked around for a suitable portion of the war experience to write about that touched the lives of the people of Old Durham County in central Ontario. Sher chose the women.

It wasn't just nursing sisters who served during the conflict. Women at home also served by raising funds that went directly to soldiers overseas, perhaps not in their pockets, but these funds purchased a few comforts of home for them while they served in the tranches or recuperated in hospital. The women also knit good warm socks for the soldiers too, and baked them cookies and sent them cigarettes and chocolates!

This book focuses on the stories of the thirty two nurses from Durham County who served their country during the First World War.
