White Ship Red Crosses: A Nursing Memoir of The Falklands War (Nicci Pugh)

White Ship Red Crosses: A Nursing Memoir of The Falklands War (Nicci Pugh)

By Nicci Pugh. 

"Not before time, the story of the Naval nursing staff on board The Hospital Ship Uganda. This is a story thats needs to be told." - Simon Weston CBE

"My own memories are vague regarding much of the early days after the bombing of the Sir Galahad, but nothing detracts from the comfort and security I felt as I cared for and nursed on board The Hospital Ship at that time. Much has been written regarding the battles and the soldier's point of view during the Falklands War, but the perspective of the medical teams has often been overlooked and ignored. This is a story that needs to be told and listened to, not just because of its powerful message. White Ship - Red Crosses is a triumph for all injured servicemen but let's not forget the tributes deserved by those unrelentingly hard-working nurses and medical teams, without whom my survival would not have been possible." - Simon Weston was a former patient on board SS Uganda during the Falklands War 1982.

Author Nicci Pugh, who worked as an Operating Theatre Sister in the midst of the casualties as they arrived on board Uganda in 1982 has captured the whole essence of treating and caring for the captured casualties in this memoir.
