Sister F Mackenzie

 

It was common practise that nursing staff during WW1 kept personal autograph books where they recorded patients they came into contact with. Some of these books were works of art and some just autographs from the men.

 

A book kept by Sister Mackenzie was recently sold on EBAY, frpm the images displayed on EBAY we extracted the following names.

We have examples of nurses books for Nurse Kathleen Bolton and Nurse Jean Macpherson
