Nurse de Trafford's first diary entry is dated 4th August 1916, a month after the Battle of the Somme which signalled the Allies' advance on the Western Front. Those wounded in that bloodbath, and many subsequent ones, were patched up and transported back to 'Blighty' for more expert treatment and the caring hands of dedicated nurses like the author, who was with a Voluntary Aid Detachment at Moor Park Military Hospital in Preston, Lancashire. With often heartbreaking honesty, this diary documents the day-to-day activities of the staff and ever-changing patients at Moor Park.
