Wednesday 11th June 2014 (1 – 2 pm)

Maritime Museum, Albert Dock, Liverpool

University of Liverpool Continuing Education Maritime Public Lecture Series 2014 – World War: From the Front to the Margins

‘Veiled Warriors: the true story of allied nursing in the First World War’

Speaker: Christine Hallett (Professor of Nursing History, University of Manchester)

Although allied nurses were admired in their own time for their altruism and courage, their image was distorted by the lens of popular mythology. They came to be seen as self-sacrificing heroines, romantic foils to the male combatant and doctors’ handmaidens, rather than being appreciated as trained professionals performing significant work in their own right. Professor Christine Hallett will challenge these myths to reveal the true story. Drawing upon evidence from archives across the world, she will describe nurses’ wartime experiences and give a clear appraisal of their work and its contribution to the allied cause between 1914 and 1918, on both the Western and the Eastern Fronts.

This lecture is free – however you will need to sign in on the day. If you would like to reserve a place beforehand you can do so by visiting Maritime Lecture Series


Friday 13th June – Sunday 15th June 2014

International Mersey River Festival On The Waterfront
a three day celebration of all things maritime and music.

The event will see a number of Tall Ships sail into the city, which will be joined by a brand new Royal Navy Ship – Type 45 Destroyer, Merchant Navy Ship Galatea, narrow boats and nobby boats (an inshore sailing vessel such as a Morecambe Bay prawners), many of which will be open to the public across the weekend.

In a coup for the city, Liverpool will play host to the popular Dutch Barge Rally which will see around 12 to 15 barges in convoy on the Leeds Liverpool canal – the largest number of these vessels to be in procession on that stretch of water for decades.

This year also marks the 350th anniversary of the Royal Marines, so there will be a series of Royal Navy, Royal Marines and Sea Cadet displays during Saturday and Sunday.
