They will also illustrate the importance that she attached to hygiene, nutrition, psychological needs of the soldiers and care of the dying. Finally there will be a review of the opinions of Mary’s work by a range of people including soldiers she treated, Sir William Howard Russell (The Times war correspondent), Florence Nightingale, medical personnel and the French chef Alexis Soyer.

An illustrated talk by Elizabeth Anionwu, CBE FRCN, Emeritus Professor of Nursing, University of West London and Vice-Chairperson of the Mary Seacole Memorial Statue Appeal.
