The Call to Duty: Canada's Nursing Sisters - a Co-Lab Challenge

Letters, diaries and photographs of four Canadian nursing sisters who served during the Great War are now available for LAC Co-Lab transcription.

Follow these nurses as they witness the destruction of war, participate in social events, and help patients, as you transcribe, translate, tag and/or describe their writings and photographs.

The material available is from:
Sophie Hoerner, born Montreal she served with 15 Canadian General Hospital, 
Dorothy Cotton, born Kingston she served at 3 General Hospital,
Ann E Ross, born Kingston she served in Greece and England, and
Ruby Peterkin, born Toronto she served with the 5 British General Hospital and 4 General Canadian Hospital.
