Anne E. Ross

Born in Kingston, Ontario, in 1890, Anne E. Ross graduated from the Lady Stanley Institute (later known as the Ottawa Civic Hospital Nursing School) in Ottawa, Ontario, in 1913. She trained at the Quebec Military Hospital before going overseas in the First World War. She served in Greece after the Dardanelles Campaign, and later in England.

For this challenge, travel to Greece with Anne and discover her work, conditions and patients there. While you transcribe, translate, tag and/or describe Anne’s narrative and photographs, glimpse the poor conditions in which nurses and soldiers alike served during the war.
