Army Nurse Corps grouping


Recommended Posts

Found this small ANC grouping about a mile  from my house at an estate sale.  I haven’t done any real research yet.   I had the uniform professionally dry cleaned and as you can see from the first picture when I brought it home to the close up further down how nice it cleaned up.

Wow, either this Sub-forum category is really slow or this find is not as interesting as I thought it was.  LOL

Must be slow...because this IS an awesome find.  I spent a good deal of time reading her letter and trying to figure out if she's one of the nurses in the group photo.  My guess is that she's front row, fifth from left.  That's the look of a woman who would close a letter "All my love always" 

 

Thanks for sharing!

Thank you.  It was a nice surprise and to find it so close to home.  Nothing was mentioned in the sale ad about military, so probably wouldn't have made the effort to drive any distance to it, except it just happened to be down the road.

 Thank you. I would like to figure that out also, but the company holding the sale didn't know and no family member was present at the sale to ask.

Thanks Kat.  I wish more was inside, or maybe there was and it was taken out by family members before the sale?  No telling.

I was looking the photo over again and there is another younger lady that's 6th in from the right side in the front row.  But not really clear if she is in a uniform or not?

I just saw this tonight (not sure how I missed it!) and that is one fantastic find! It doesn't get any better than that.
