Another uniform!

Postby Crafters Corner » Fri Oct 03, 2008 5:33 am

This is a picture of my friend's ancestors. Anyone know what the uniforms are? We think the man is in a St. John's Ambulance uniform, but have no idea about the lady's. They were in Canada.
Over to you knowledgeable lot...........

Hi,

In the absence of any other reply have you thought about sending a copy of the photograph to the St Johns Ambulance in Canada. The address of their national office is:[align=left]Suite 400, 1900 City Park Drive, Ottawa, Ontario, K1J 1A3.[/align][align=left] [/align][align=left]With the name of the individual they may be able to provide additional information.[/align][align=left] [/align][align=left]Paul [/align]

Hi,
Yes, I have done that, and they let us know a bit about the man's uniform, but we are still curious about the lady's.
Thanks for the info. however.

Cheers,

Hello!

Don't know if this helps - I spent years in St. John Ambulance (it's St.John Ambulance not St. John's Ambulance by the way!). The man is obviously a St.John man, the lady looks to me like she could be too. I put a search on Google 'St John serving sister uniform' - the 5th item on Google reads St. John Ambulance Female Uniform - The earliest Brigade nursing .... click on that - the sketch looks very similar to your photo - web address is sja/pdf/uniform_female.pdf

What do you think?
