Somervillians in the First World War


Hilda Lorimer – Classics Tutor at Somerville 1896-1934.  Like many of her colleagues, Miss Lorimer divided her time during the First World War between teaching at Oxford and helping with the war effort.  Here she is pictured in the uniform of the Scottish Women’s Hospital Service. She worked for them during the long vacations of 1917 and 1918 in Salonika.
