Affiliate Member of BCHNS,Linda Quiney,  presented a copy of her book, entitled “THIS SMALL ARMY OF WOMEN” to archive committee members Nan Martin (Chair) and Ethel Warbinek, long time member of the Archive committee.  BCHNS helped sponsor the book & is happy to accept it for our Archives.  Linda has documented how 2000 Canadian & Newfoundland women known as VADS served in the First World War.  Most performed their war work across Canada & Newfoundland in Military Convalescent Hospitals, but 500 were posted over seas as “active service” VADS.
