France. c. 1916. A portrait of Dorothy Ellena Duffy, one of a group of twenty civilian nurses who volunteered to work for the Red Cross in France during World War 1. They were known as 'Bluebirds' because of their distinctive blue uniforms (not seen here). Duffy is seen wearing the uniform worn by the nurses while in France. On her left sleeve is the contingent's badge. At her neck is an unidentified medal, probably her graduation medal.
