...is for bronze bust. This bronze bust of Georgina Pope is part of the Valiants Memorial near the National War Memorial in Ottawa. In 1899, Pope led a group of nurses in the South African War. She was the first Canadian to receive the Royal Red Cross, and in 1908, she became Canada's first Nursing Matron having charge of all Canadian military nurses. At age 55, in poor health, she went overseas once again in 1917 to work near Ypres, one of the battlefields of the First World War. Pope was a native of Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island and a graduate of the Bellevue Hospital School of Nursing in New York.
B for buttons as well - lots of them on her uniform.
