We know a great deal about why New Zealand men went away to fight, what happened to them in South Africa, in Gallipoli and France, in the desert, Italy, Greece, Crete and the Pacific, and how they fared on their return. But the military nurses who worked in South Africa from 1899 to 1902, in many theatres of war from 1914 to 1918, in Spain during the Civil War and in a variety of countries from 1939 to 1948, have not, until recently, been so well known.

Anna Rogers, author of While You're Away: New Zealand Nurses at War 1899–1948, will talk about the contribution made by these remarkable women and speak about three nurses, two of them from Canterbury, who served overseas in South Africa, the First World War and the Second World War.
