Abstract

The French Flag Nursing Corps (FFNC)
was a small organisation of trained British,
Irish and Commonwealth nurses who
worked not for the British military during the
First World War but within the French army.
The organisation can be seen as two
things. Firstly, it was internationalist in
outlook, seeing nursing as being above
national boundaries and acting out an
obligation to help France in its hour of need.
Secondly the Corps can be seen as a
means of demonstrating to the French, and
probably also to the British, how effective
nursing can be when practiced by a
workforce whose members are all fullytrained
experts.
