Newfoundland At Armageddon


VAD caretakers had a number of responsibilities: cleaning wards, making beds, preparing meals, bathing the wounded and washing their dressings, sterilizing bandages and medical equipment. They also helped keep up patient morale by reading letters from home, writing back messages, sitting by their side during their last moments and preparing bodies for burial.
