Canadian Nursing Sisters in the Korean War, Michael Bedford, Friends of the Canadian War Museum (2013)

During the United Nations Operations in Korea, Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps  Nursing Sisters served in Japan and Korea. Royal Canadian Air Force  Sisters qualified as Flight Nurses, flew air evacuation with casualties to Canada. In Korea, Canadian nurses were again faced with providing medical services in a combat zone. They also faced the daunting challenge of both battle-inflicted injuries and infectious disease. When the ceasefire came into effect in 1953, the sisters worked with the newly-released prisoners of war, helping to restore their physical health –  this is their story
