About the design

Our Sisters of War top pays tribute to all of the nurses who served at war. The shirt is predominately made up of shades of grey - which represents the original grey zephyr colour of the Australian Military nurse uniform. The red scarlet neckline represents the shoulder cape which was often fastened across the nurses neck.

The front of the top sees a focus on a contemplative nurse wearing the traditional uniform of the Royal Australian Army Nursing Corps, including the veil. In the background, nurses and Australian soldiers can be seen conversing and talking in a field. Further into the distance, a silhouette of the soldiers going to war can be seen.

HISTORY

Wartime Nurses

Well over 2,000 women served as nurses with the Australian Army Nursing Service during WW1, with many travelling overseas to help the offshore troops.

Despite facing challenges such as disease, poor facilities, and a lack of staff with a large number of wounded, Australian nurses were hardworking and resilient. 

On the back of the top, a nurse is seen kneeling over a wounded soldier, helping him. Another nurse stands in the distance looking out to the soldiers at war in the distance. Above her, are birds taking flight; representing freedom. Higher in the centre of the top, there’s a large red poppy, a symbol for remembrance. The text, “Sisters of War” is written across the stem of the poppy, with “the unsung heroes” written just below this.

The Flanders poppy has long been a part of Remembrance Day and is also being used as part of Anzac Day observances. The Red Poppy was the first to flower in the battlefields of France and Belgium in WW1. Soldiers folklore believe that the bright red poppy came from their comrades blood in the ground. The Red Poppy on the front as well as on the right shoulder of the top commemorate this.

The sleeve has a faint outline of the soldiers going to war, alongside the red cross.
