War nurses called "nurse"

 In the former Great War, we were relief, nursing of the war disabled, and there were war nurses who did various wartime experience. If it was the wartime once, they were summoned like soldier, and hospital in battle front and inland (Japan) worked hard at relief, nursing activity in hospital ship again.
  Life of many people was saved by their devoted activity, but most of nurses sent to the battle front suffered from the situation that could not be even active with lack of extreme pharmaceutical products and had to perform activity that you jeopardized epidemic and own life including air strike. Furthermore, girl students who did not have qualification of nurse were mobilized by the Battle of Okinawa as student nursing corps and might lose our life in battlefield like "the Himeyuri students". In addition, there are experiences after work, returning home to Japan still passed as nurse under the Allied Forces for several years from the end of the war that knew the end of the war in foreign land (Japanese foreign territory).
  War nurses could see figure which appeared in many photograph documents with white robe with the war disabled, and, also, we were, and person who got married with nurse whom we met while we underwent medical treatment in the war disabled was relation not to be sharp even if we cut with the war disabled.
By book exhibition, we consider step that women called "nurse" ticked away with the war disabled as war nurse based on document conveying their figure which document donated by former war nurse and the war disabled saw and individual experiences in postwar period for wartime.
