Edie’s new website – www.anurseatthefront.org.uk – went live today- Tuesday 4 November 2014 – which just happens to be her great nephew’s birthday.
It’s been great working with Jan Scott-Nelson (more about her here) over the past few months. She has been endlessly patient in teaching me the tricks of WordPress and I hope it shows!
For the purists out there: OK, we know that nurses like Edie were not AT the front but I have a couple of responses to that:
- We can blame the publishers of the book version (see details here) as they insisted that A NURSE AT THE FRONT was a wonderful title for the hardback and paperback versions of Edie’s diaries, and
- Although they were not right at the front, nurses were often in great danger; witness Edie’s accounts of having to move at very short notice when under fire and of the deaths of her colleagues under fire.
On a more cheerful note, here below are a couple of images to celebrate the launch of the new website.
