162 Words1 Page
Women have played various significant roles in World War II, particularly for nurses. Around 5000 nurses have confronted war first hand and have sacrificed their lives to help wounded and sick soldiers on the front line. In those 5000 nurses, 78 had died during their active service overseas. Nursing services like the Royal Australian Air Force Nursing Service (RAAFNS) and the Royal Australian Navy Nursing Services (RANNS) and AANS have provided services overseas in Britain, Asia, the Pacific and the Mediterranean. In 1942, a large number of nurses worked in medical centres in the Middle East and the Mediterranean. Young nurses treated gunshot wounds for the very first time. Nurses treating soldiers were in constant danger of enemy forces.
