Trenton Air Station hospital collection

  • RC0792
  • Coleção
  • 1942

The album was compiled by someone stationed at Trenton, presumably a nurse, because the b&w photographs are predominantly of nurses on and off duty. There are two group photographs both taken on 9 July 1942 of hospital staff – one contains men in military uniform only, the other of men in military uniform and women in nursing uniforms. Only two album pages contain captions: one is of nursing orderlies, the other of “one hot night in June 1942 on the back porch”. All of the photographs were taken at Trenton except for a photograph of two nurses at Emerald Lake Chalet in the Canadian Rockies. There is one photograph of all personnel on the parade ground – possibly for a BCATP graduation ceremony.
