Florence Nightingale (1820-1910)


RCIN 2853480

Florence Nightingale remains one of the most recognised figures of the Crimean War. Her dedication to wounded soldiers earned her the admiration of Queen Victoria who recorded in her Journal: ‘I envy her being able to do so much good and look after the noble heroes whose behaviour is admirable’. The Queen also supported Nightingale in practical ways, sending her cases of medical supplies and writing to senior military figures in the Crimea expressing her concern for the welfare of the troops.
