Edith Appleton served in Queen Alexandra's Imperial Military Nursing Service Reserve (QAIMNSR) throughout the First World War. Often near the Front in Northern France, she wrote an amazing daily journal, published in 2012.

This talk, by Edie's great nephew, Dick Robinson, tells her story with extracts from the diaries read by Dick's wife, Lisa, and is fully illustrated. Copies of the book will be available at a discounted price. Visit www.edithappleton.org.uk for more information about her life. Followed by question and answer session.
