Family historian Iris Taylor takes us through a brief history of New Zealand nursing up to the First World War.
Iris also covers the deaths of ten New Zealand nurses when the 'Marquette' was struck by a torpedo in the Aegean Sea. She recounts her pilgrimage in September 2015 to remember these New Zealand nurses and visit the island of Lemnos, a Greek island off the coast of Turkey, where the 3rd Australian Field Hospital was set up to take casualties from Gallipoli.
