You may have noticed that I am blogging quite a bit on the nursing sisters of the Great War. I expect that, in time, I will be getting to their experiences in the Second World War.
The reason is the influence of one woman - my mother. Audrey June Steele (1921-1989) was born in London, Ontario. She graduated from the Victoria Hospital School of Nursing in 1942, and joined the army shortly after. She was posted, for the most part, in military hospitals in Ontario. It was while she was at Westminster Hospital (now the London Heath Sciences Center) that she met my father. He was there for treatment, and physiotherapy, of injuries he received during a train accident in July of 1945.
And the rest as they say was History!
