Commentary on documents and photographs collected by Kate Maxey MM, RRC, FNM
by John Banham
This information was compiled to support the ‘Somme 1916 – From Durham to the Western Front’ exhibition at Durham University Palace Green Library in 2016.
It adds information about Sister Kate Maxey’s documents and family photos, including the album she compiled while serving in France during the Great War.
The author, John Banham, revised the information in September 2016 to reflect ongoing research into nursing in the First World War.
