Remembering the Military nurses with Iris Taylor

Whare Wānanga, Central Library, Level 2, 44 Lorne Street, Auckland CBD


All Ages

Family historian Iris Taylor takes us through a brief history of New Zealand nursing up to the First World War.

Iris also covers the deaths of 10 New Zealand nurses when the 'Marquette' was struck by a torpedo in the Aegean Sea. She recounts her pilgrimage in September 2015 to remember these New Zealand nurses and visit the island of Lemnos, a Greek island off the coast of Turkey, where the 3rd Australian Field Hospital was set up to take casualties from Gallipoli.

Speaker's biography
Iris Taylor is a family historian with an interest in military history, as several family members have served in the Military from at least the early 1800s. This interest has taken her to Greece, Crete, and Gallipoli several times.
