First World War nursing records on Documents Online

The National Archives has published 15,000 First World War nursing service records, on its Documents Online site at www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/documentsonline/nursing.asp.

The records date from 1902-1922 and include details such as date and place of birth, training prior to and during the war, references to their suitability as military nurses hospitals, field ambulances, casualty clearing stations and other medical units served in, and assessments by superiors.

TNA's news page at www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/news/635.htm is saying they cost £3.50 each to download, however, at the moment, they seem to be being offered for free - so may be worth having a quick look!
