The Countess of Wessex Unveils Painting During Visit to Sandhurst
The Countess of Wessex was in Camberley today, where she visited the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst for the unveiling of a new painting that marks the Queen Alexandra’s Royal Army Nursing Corps involvement in Operation Gritrock.
Operation Gritrock was undertaken by the British, Irish and Canadian Armed Forces between October 2014 and November 2015 to eradicate the Ebola virus in West Africa.
Sophie, in a full black ensemble with the badge of the QARANC pinned to her left shoulder (she is their Colonel-in-Chief), was joined by artist Stuart Brown for the unveiling. Afterwards, she also viewed protective suits worn by the military nurses during their time in Sierra Leone providing medical aid to victims of the disease.Filed under The United Kingdom
