Frances Cluett, n.d.

Frances Cluett, from Belleoram, Newfoundland and Labrador, served as a VAD in England and France during the First World War. In her letters home, Cluett often wrote of wounded soldiers. “You can read about war, and the wounded,” she wrote on 8 June 1917, “but when you are brought face to face with it, I tell you, it is heart rending.”
