The Angels Portrayed as Women

This illustration was made later in the war. The metal helmets the soldiers wear were first issued in the summer of 1916. Notice that the angels have become women. There was a connection in the soldiers’ minds between nurses, nursing nuns, and angels, but not in the literal sense. Instead, these women were angels of mercy, of comfort, of help, hope, and healing.fortean_times_736_8
