Q
Do you have any examples of clothing British nurses used to wear in the 1870s? Especially nurses that went with the regiments to India?
A

No, I don’t, sorry!  I think your best bet for that is looking at photographs from the era.  If you’re writing something about the military, there are sure to be documents with illustrations of a nurse’s uniforms and specific rules regarding their appearance/upkeep.  Start with google, and if you can’t find that, try getting in touch with some museums or archives dedicated to preserving that sort of information (if it’s military-related, there’s sure to be someone out there who has exactly what you’re looking for).
