GRACE CHARLOTTE VULLIAMYConclusion.Miss Vulliamy’s wartime experience was unique and she was aware of its significance. On 24 July, 1918 she had an interview with Agnes Conway, Hon Secretary, of the Imperial War Museum’s Women’s Sub-committee. Conway recorded: ‘Miss Vulliamy is most anxious to keep her work private and never writes anything if she can help it.’ This helps to explain why she is so little known. Grace Vulliamy’s life was spent saving adults and children from the ravages of war and famine. She was compared to Edith Cavell because, disregarding her own safety, she rescued prisoners. Like Florence Nightingale she placed her health at risk nursing the sick. She pioneered the early understanding that, as well as physical health, people need self-respect restored. She deserves to be entered into the canon of women’s history. *********All photos reproduced here are by courtesy of Grace Vulliamy’s grand daughter, Nicolette Vulliamy.Except the following:Refugees sewing at a Refugee camp in Holland.(See Chapter 4: Helping the Quakers)© Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) in Britain
