If you agree that we should save our history please visit her website and sign the petition.

In the Company of Nurses written by Yvonne McEwen, is the authorised history of the British Army Nursing Service in the Great War. Published official and unofficial documents, letters and diaries tell the story of the Queen Alexandra's Imperial Military Nursing Service (QAIMNS) during the First World War. The publication was commissioned by the QARANC and funded in part by the QARANC Association. A pre-launch of the book took place at the Prince Consort Library in October where Yvonne McEwan spoke about the book and advised on the importance of accurately recording events and practices in order to better inform the future. She advised that she encountered considerable voids when gathering information and data for the publication and explained how these were overcome. She also shared the background on how the book received its title.
