On the Ruardean Section2 (photographs) there are two photographs of my x Great Aunt Fanny Eveline WICKENDEN in her Nursing Uniform c1909. Fanny nursed at the Southmead Hospital Bristol.

She is mentioned in Google Books - Nursing History Review Vol 15 by Patricia D'Antonio.

Under the Heading, Applicants Accepted for Training as VNMs in Gloucestershire (only a handful)

'Fanny Wickenden was sent for training in August 1909 - but she did not appear to the demands made on her during the training and was recalled in December'

Sadly, Fanny went to Swindon, Wiltshire to her brother's in 1900 and gave birth to a Son who was adopted - she never married.

It also talks about a Nurse Thompson working in St Briavels, who was not very satisfactory!
