Friends Lunchtime Lecture with David McBurnie

‘Florence Barrington – a year in Russia 1916-1917’
Tuesday, March 12, 1-2pm in the Hunt Museum’s Captains Room

Florence Barrington (1894-1968), daughter of Croker Barrington of the Red House, Clonkeen, travelled to Russia as a volunteer nurse in late 1916. She served first in the Anglo-Russian Hospital, Petrograd (later St. Petersburg), and then on Russia’s Eastern front. This talk focuses on her experiences, drawing extensively on the diary she kept, which gives a fascinating picture of a brave and resourceful young woman during one of the most turbulent years in European history.
