  • Description

    HONOUR FOR CONSETT NURSE. Amongst the specially-trained nurses to accompany the staff of Sir Frederick Treves, the Royal Household physician, to the base hospital for the Dardanelles, at Malta, is Miss Elizabeth Carruthers, daughter of Mr. John Carruthers, of Buddle Street, Consett. Miss Carruthers was formerly connected with the Salvation Army Corps, and held the rank of Captain at Boscom, Ryde, Isle of Wight. Afterwards she spent some years in the S.A. International Training College, London, and, three years ago, she took up a position as nurse in Portsmouth, where she has proved herslef very successful, gaining certificates with honours, in medicine and midwifery. Her brilliant work has been rewarded by the special appointment she has now received. Nurse Carruthers's younger sister, Capt. M. Carruthers, is associated with the Salvation Army, and is now stationed at Sheerness, where she is performing beneficial work in relieving the necessitous poor. This photograph was published in the Illustrated Chronicle on the 18th of May 1915. During the Great War the Illustrated Chronicle published photographs of soldiers and sailors from Newcastle and the North East of England, which had been in the news. The photographs were sent in by relatives and give us a glimpse into the past. The physical collection held by Newcastle Libraries comprises bound volumes of the newspaper from 1910 to 1925. We are keen to find out more about the people in the photographs. If you recognise anyone in the images or have any stories or information to add please comment below. Copies of this photograph may be ordered from us, for more information see: http://www.newcastle.gov.uk/tlt" >www.newcastle.gov.uk/tlt Please make a note of the image reference number above to help speed up your order.
