Group portrait of sisters from the hospital outside a thatched hut. They are possibly White Sisters, Missionary Sisters of Our Lady of Africa, who attended to European and African casualties. ❧ The image is from an album chronicling the war time experiences of Archibald Clive Irvine (1893-1974) in German East Africa and Portuguese East Africa with the Royal Army Medical Corps. During this time he would meet Dr John W Arthur which in turn would lead to his missionary work at Chogoria in Kenya.
