The Florence Nightingale Museum marks the centenary of the First World War with a special exhibition honouring the inspirational work of nurses in war-torn France.

The exhibition centres on a series of ten remarkable paintings by Victor Tardieu of the field hospital run by the Society beauty, Millicent, Duchess of Sutherland.

Never before displayed in public, the paintings capture a moment of tranquility and transformation amid the turmoil of the First World War.

Funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, the exhibition explores the crucial role played by women in the battlefields of France and Belgium and shows the incredible innovation displayed by nurses under challenging and dangerous conditions.
