Louise and Marion were in their 30s when they served in Europe, and both continued to volunteer with the Red Cross after they returned to Halifax. A 1950 image from their collection shows a Red Cross van providing food at a Musquodoboit forest fire.
Like many Canadians, Marion Keshen was proud of her war service; she kept her Red Cross uniform the rest of her life. A photograph taken of Marion before her death shows her nurses dressed up in her old Red Cross uniform. Visit the Archives to see more of the Keshen Goodman family photographs.
All images are from a scrapbook of the Keshen sisters' WWII Red Cross service, CR 19 Keshen Goodman family photographs.
