About the Museum
Australian Military Nursing commemorated its 100th
year of service in 1999 . The official opening of the E.M Lane
Nurses’ Museum by Sir Roden Cutler on July 4, 1999 was timed to
coincide with this anniversary as a tribute to our service nurses.
Named in honour of Mrs Ethel “Stalky” Lane AM MBE, the Museum’s
main objective is to collect, preserve, display and research
objects, material and information relating to Australian Military
Nursing and the early history of Concord Repatriation General
The Museum has a sound collection of nursing uniforms dating as
far back as the Boer War. There is also an interesting collection of
documents, diaries, personal papers, photographs and memorabilia of
military nurses from 1890s through to the Vietnam War.
