From Trafalgar to the Falklands

A History of International Hospital Ships

After training as a nurse in Exeter and St George’s, Nicci joined the Queen Alexandra’s Royal Naval Nursing Service and was selected to serve on board HM Hospital Ship Uganda as a Senior Nursing Officer during the Falklands War.

Following her experiences Nicci now works as a voluntary ambassador for The South Atlantic Medal Association (www.sama82.org.uk).

In this talk, Nicci explores the history and use of hospital ships to aid casualties of major conflicts including the Napoleonic, Crimean and the Falklands Wars.
