War Worn & Weary: the convalescent nurses of Osborne House Geelong, 1917-1919. By Cheryl Scott and Margaret Phelan

WW1 is the backdrop for this book, and the centenary of ANZAC , its catalyst.

It is a collection of vignettes of 47 women who volunteered for service abroad to look after ‘our boys’.  Broken in health, they were invalided home to recuperate at Osborn House, Geelong, Victoria’s first Red Cross Rest Home for war worn nurses.  Some never fully recovered while others went on to lead full and productive lives.

Here are their inspirational stories.
