Description

Experience the world of artist Jessie Traill, who travelled from Australia to London in 1914 to join the war effort. She served as a British Voluntary Aid Detachment nursing assistant in France for four years, and recorded her extraordinary experiences – including a first-hand account of Armistice Day – through sketches, photographs and personal writings. Join curator Eve Sainsbury to learn more about Traill’s military service and her passion for art and travel.
