Harriet Simeon was a nurse in the first World War. She helped the injured and wounded soldiers in the war. But after two and half years she enlisted in the brand new Women’s Royal Air Force in 1918. By 1919 Harriet had become the highest ranking New Zealand woman in the WRAF (Women’s Royal Air Force) when she was promoted to Assistant Air Commandant, an amazing achievement that many people couldn't believe was true.
When and where it was:
The first World War was in July the 28th 1914 to November the 11th 1918. And it was happening in 5 different places which were: Europe, Africa, Asia, Middle east and the Pacific Ocean.
She was usually out helping the wounded and injured soldiers so she probably spent most of her time in the hospital room when she wasn’t out helping the soldiers that were fighting.
Where she lived:
What she lost:
Since she was a nurse in the war she probably lost a lot of her patients and friends. She might of even lost her friends who were nurses if they got shot or died in the war.
The nurses had to eat things gross like of calf's foot jelly and beef tea custard. So be grateful of the food you get to eat nowadays. And never take things for granted.
What she ate:
What she invested:
The nurses invested what injuries and wounds the soldiers had so that she could heal them and then they could fight again. That is why nurses need a lot of medical knowledge.
