Journey into War: A Women’s Diary

March 7, 2013 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

In July 1915, newly enrolled army nurse Sister Kit McNaughton embarked on His Majesty’s Australian Troopship Orsova, on the first stage of her journey to war. In stepping onto a troopship, Kit McNaughton was stepping out of place – away from the woman’s role of quiet waiting on the home front. That day, she would begin a diary that she would continue through four years of war. Kit’s diary allows us to see the new experiences of the voyage through her eyes, and reveals how those experiences began to change the way she thought about herself, and her world.
