The Australian Army Nursing Service (AANS) was formed in 1903, and became instrumental during WWI. Recapture the bravery and tireless work ethic of these nurses with Sister Bernadette, the Nurse Bear!

Standing tall at 40cm, Sister Bernadette wears the zephyr grey dress of the AANS, along with a white collar and veil and scarlet cape. She sports the Rising Sun badge as a brooch, and wears the AANS cloth badge on her arm. The ‘pips’ on her epaulettes denote her rank of Sister.

In addition to over 3,000 civilian volunteer nurses, more than 2,000 AANS members served overseas. They were deployed in a variety of locations, with some working in large hospitals set up in India and Greece, and others closer to the conflict in France, Belgium and the Middle East. Working conditions were often extremely difficult for these nurses. They had to contend with huge numbers of casualties, limited supplies and makeshift facilities – plus the threat of attack.

Sister Bernadette has been limited to an edition of 10,000. Each bear is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
