A Great Adventure
A look at the experiences of the members of the Scottish Women's Hospitals in Serbia during the First World War. This all-female unit treated Serb soldiers and the peasant population of the country in its darkest hour. They shared the dangers of disease, invasion, retreat and possible death in the face of three invading armies. As a result, the women of this unit and its founder, Dr Elsie Inglis, are revered in the country where they served. One Scotswoman travelled to Serbia to see for herself where they worked and how they are remembered in the country that adopted them. Ailsa Clarke's interest in WW1 was sparked as a 16-year-old on her high school battlefield trip. She went on as an adult to become a tour guide on the Western Front before going into secondary school teaching. She is also a practioner of living history who specialises in portraying women on active service during the conflict.
