The Bluebird Nurses

48 3

The Bluebird Nurses were a group of twenty Australian Nurses who volunteered for service in France during WW1.

They were recruited through the Australian Red Cross Society and the group's nickname referred to the colours of their specially designed uniforms.

They returned to Australia following the war's end and did not receive any medals or veteran's benefits from the Australian Government.
