Abstract

Although much has been written about the vital role played by both women and men in producing munitions during the First World War and the impact that this had on their health, less is known about the provision of health and nursing care to this workforce. This article discusses a study which aims to increase understanding of the ways in which heath care was provided for those working in the munition factories and the contribution that nurses made to this.
