WWII PTO Nurse’s Uniform Grouping

Recommended Posts

Picked up this Uniform group recently. It belonged Lt. Louise Gaida of the 310th General Hospital which seemed to be a part of XXIV Corps. The 310th was based out of Seoul, Korea. She was also from the city I grew up in as well. Not a ton of ANC related items in her album but a lot of cards, she was a popular gal! Not pictured was her OD cape and service cap. I work as an RN so nurse stuff is always up my alley!

Thanks for posting this.  I enjoyed the TS card - Chaplain's version - and the letter addressed to "Lt. Lovely Louise..."  Both gave me a reason to chuckle.

 

If you get a chance, I'd love to see a picture of her cape. 

My Grandmother was a nurse during this timeframe and I know how important the nurses' cape and pin was to those wonderful ladies.

Glad you like it! Was your grandmother ANC or civilian? I’ll try and get some pics of the OD cape. I didn’t get her nursing school cape but happy with what I got from the group!
