I am very grateful to Norman’s family for their permission to share these precious few photos that have survived from her time working at Bouleuse during 1917-1918.

I have scanned both back and front of the photos as Norman’s inscriptions on the reverse side give tantalising glimpses of her life and work at the hospital.
