American Nurses in France. They are all wearing long white dresses and neat square caps with their hair tied back except for two of the women who are entirely in black. Nursing was one of the few occupations which allowed women access to the Front where they performed, obviously, an extremely valuable service. It was also the only occupation which enabled women during this period to travel around different areas out of their native lands.
