Hello. My husband and I have a war and social history museum on the south coast of Western Australia. |
I have recently purchased a nice grouping of items that purportedly belonged to a WWI nurse named Theresa Marie CORNISH. It includes a white cloth armband with a red cross on it, a large metal crucifix, a metal box used to hold candles, a small metal container to hold morphine ampoules and a 1916 coin that has been shot through with a bullet.
They were purchased at a house clearance in Sidmouth in 2012. The purchaser at that time wrote down some details about the nurse which included her name and the fact that she had served at a hospital in Boulogne, France during WWI and was evacuated from Guernsey during WWII.
I have had no luck locating any information about her and would appreciate anything that you may find.
I posted this on Rootschat yesterday and they suggested contacting this forum.
