Research Facts
"Not surprisingly, every nursing school claims a distinctive cap or headdress, and their graduates bear them across country and overseas." Each hospital or school designed its own nursing uniform in order to convey a certain image. They were both functional and symbolic. A black band on a nurse's cap indicated that she was a trained graduate nurse, whereas no band, or sometimes other colours, indicated different levels of training, working up to the final black band.

Poem: "TO FLAX SEED AND A NURSE // A plant there grows in many a clime, // High prized by man, his constant Care, // Responsive to his toils adn skill, // It yeilds for him a fabric fair. // But not of that I now would sing, // Tho' raiment while I do adore; // I like its seeds placed on my cheek // To extirpate teh humour there. // When racked with pain, relief I find // In applications soft nd warm, // By loving hands upon me laid - // I sleep in peace till dawns the morn. // Tho' long the trial, the ends in sight, // When freedom comes to me once more, // I breathe my thanks for blessings twain, // The plant and your devoted care. // F. G. Kirkpatrick // K.G.H., 2nd Feb. 1929"; hand written inscription on separate page in blue ink: “K G H said they would // like to have this illustrated poem. // When I no longer need it, // it can be sent in care of // the nursing director // Margaret Kirkpatrick // Nov 17 / 89 // It was written for Olive Hartshorn KGH 1931 // by Rev F.G.
