About this title


**Subtitle for back cover: The Memoirs of a Nurse 1889-1989** Written with great charm, Dorothy tells her story of her time as a nurse in the London of the First World War and the Cairo of the early 'twenties. This is the first book to tell how a training nurse survived without antibiotics and unions, and worked a fourteen-hour day for œ8 a year. Qualified and disillusioned, Dorothy's sense of adventure took her to Cairo - exotic, eye-opening and full of romance.
