Navy Nurses Investigate Plants in Guadalcanal Jungle

Two Tennessee nurses, former classmates, and now with a group of fifty navy nurses to arrive for duty at a Naval Hospital on Guadalcanal, investigate the ginger plant on the fringe of the jungle. Ensign Frances Collings (left) of Cedar Grove, TN, and Ensign Ella Mae Whitaker (right) of Memphis, TN, enjoy themselves where the Japanese and Marines fought. They disembarked on the same stretch of beach where the Marines landed in their assault in 1942. Photo taken May 3, 1944.
