Personal Diary - Laura Gamble - We were there

Excerpt from the Personal Diary of Nurse Laura Gamble Written during Her Time with the Canadian Army Nursing Service on the Western Front, 1915-1919
These pages from Laura Gamble's diary reveal the more disturbing aspects of the military nurse's work that came when hospitals and care units were shelled. Like the soldiers, nurses risked their lives by going to the Front.
