  • Editor's note: 'A spirit of adventure and a keen desire to travel,' observes Jan Bassett in her study of Australian Army nursing Guns and Brooches (1992), was 'just as important as imperial loyalty in motivating many of the nurses to go to South Africa'. Julia Anderson was one of ten nurses who sailed on the Euryalus with the Third (Bushmen's) Contingent in March 1900. Anderson published this portrait of her African experiences in Una, the journal of the Victorian Trained Nurses' Association.
