The Humanitarian Side of Post-Master´s Certificate in Nursing

Nurse Margaret Maul treated wounded soldiers in WWI–even prisoners of war! In 2013, an old suitcase that belonged to her was discovered in a university cupboard. It contained many treasures that tell an interesting story about this nurse and her heroic wartime nursing efforts.

Very little was known about nurse Margaret Maule, until the battered suitcase containing her mementos was discovered at the back of a cupboard at the University of Abertay, in Dundee in 2013.

Researchers began piecing her story together from everything that was in the case: photographs, her diary, letters, nursing certificates and an article she had written for a newspaper.

Academics at the university had no idea why the suitcase was hidden away in a cupboard at the university, especially since there is no record of her ever having been there.

There was an article Nurse Maule had written for a newspaper called The People's Journal in the suitcase. There was also an autograph book filled with sketches and thank you notes from German patients.

According to her diary, she had reservations about treating enemy soldiers as her brother had been killed in action in the spring of 1917. However, despite her misgivings, the kind-hearted nurse tended to injured German prisoners of war while she worked at the Dartford War Hospital, in Kent. She also treated British soldiers at a hospital in Glasgow.

Robin Ion, head of Abertay's Nursing and Counselling Division, said: 'The contents of this suitcase are absolutely fascinating. But we know very little about the person who owned it. There's no record of her ever having been to Abertay, so how it came to be in our possession is a complete mystery. All we know about her is what we've been able to piece together from the things we found in her suitcase.”

The suitcase contained documents dating back to 1914, including a number of faded photographs of her and her fellow nurses dressed in their pristine white uniforms. At the time, nursing was a relatively new profession, and no one knows very much about what it was like to be one back then.

Maule was desperate to do her bit for the war effort, so she was shocked when she found out that she was going to be sent to Dartford to care for prisoners of war.

Her patients went to the trouble of crafting gifts for her to show their appreciation. Nursing has always been about showing compassion without prejudice. Nurse Maule showed an enormous depth of feeling to her patients under very difficult circumstances.

She was part of the Queen Alexandra's Imperial Nursing Service (QAIMNS), which was was formed in 1902 and replaced the Army Nursing Service, formed in the 1850s to provide care to soldiers injured during the Crimean War.

Maule was born in Paisley in 1887. She went to East Public School and trained as a nurse at Merryflatts Hospital - now the Southern General Hospital in Glasgow - from 1914 to 1917.

After the war she worked in the Shakespeare Hospital in Glasgow, before doing further training at the Greenock District Nursing Association, in 1919.

She was sent a letter of appreciation for her service from the Ministry of Defence in 1969, when she finally retired after 52 years of service aged 82.
