Boer War Nurses & Nursing

I have transcribed the QSA Medal Rolls for Nurses serving in the Boer War (WO 100/125; WO 100/225 & WO 100/229). These rolls contain details of:

  • Army Nursing Service (ANS)
  • Princess Christian's Army Nursing Service (Reserve) (ANSR)
  • Australian Military Nurses (New South Wales, South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria, Western Australia)
  • Canadian Military Nurses (Canada)
  • New Zealand Military Nurses (New Zealand)
  • Nurses working in civil hospitals caring for military patients (Civilian Nurse)
  • Nurses in the Natal Volunteer Medical Corps (Natal Volunteer)
  • Religious Sisters working in hospitals (Nun)
  • Nurses working for the South African Constabulary (South African Constabulary)
  • Servants to nurses (Servant) and cooks (Cook)
  • Some Ladies who were considered for a QSA because of their hospital work (Civilians)


I have added to the medal roll information details from other sources (Census,Nominal Rolls, The Army List, Shipping Lists, Nursing Journals and The London Gazette), all of which are referenced so that you can find the primary source for yourself. This has enabled me to corroborate information and make corrections where official records were incorrect. If you cannot find what you want please contact me, and I will see what I can find out for you.
