Florence Parbury, traveller and war worker Featured Print

Florence Parbury, traveller and war worker

Florence Parbury, described by the Illustrated Sporting and Dramatic News as 'one of our most versatile and accomplished women, and a great traveller.' In Canada she camped, climbed, rode on a cayuse through the Rockies, trekked up the Thompson River - the first white woman to be seen on its banks - with a train of twelve horses and six guides and packers; sometimes she guided her own canoe on the river, shooting the rapids, and taking all the risks of a journey in the wilds. Author of a book on India - 'An Emerald Set with Pearls'. She also composed an operetta founded on a Kashmir romance. When the First World War broke out she nursed for eight months in France under the Croix Rouge and then gave entertainments to thousands of men in hospitals and huts as well as in her own Jacobean Studio in London. She was, again, according to the ISDN, 'the possessor of a fine singing voice of unusual compass.'
1918
