A talk will take place at the Ulster Museum on the First World War diaries of Emma Duffin, a Voluntary Aid Detachment Nurse from Belfast, by Trevor Parkhill.

Emma was a young Belfast book illustrator who served as a VAD nurse, first in Egypt and then, from May 1916, in Le Havre.

One of her distinguishing features was an ability to speak fluent German and as the wounded Germans began to pile up she was able to communicate with them.
