11 Jan 2017

I want to know who was the first Nurse on Guadalcanal during WW II? Name and date?

I have a journal from a Airplane Mechanic who was assignd to Henderson Field Guadalcanal Mar 1943 through Jun 1944 and he mentions that he walked passed two Navy nurses on 10 and 26 Oct 1943.

From another source I have an Army Nurse stepping off an evacuation aircraft at Henderson Field Jun 1944 as the first woman on Guadalcanal.

Help please - My email is william.h.little@gmail.com

Hi Bill,

I'm sorry, but I don't have this information. I hope someone who knows the answer will e-mail you.

Greetings,
Katy

WW2 RADIO on Facebook has published an album a few days ago with photographs of first women on Guadalcanal - Flight Nurses. No names mentions though. Pictures are dated April 1943 (but it might as well be the date of development of the film).
