No. 3 Canadian Stationary Hospital at Doullens. The interior of a church in Doullens, France was used as a stationary hospital. This painting by Gerald Moira depicts a nursing sister in the foreground looking over sick and injured soldiers.

Wilfred Whitern's painting of the Canadian hospital ship Lady Nelson shows the brightly lit vessel in its distinctive paint scheme identifying it as a non combatant. Like all hospital ships, the Lady Nelson was painted white, with a broad green stripe and red crosses on its hull. At night, lights illuminated these markings, along with Red Cross flags and a red cross on the funnel. The Canadian military chartered the Lady Nelson, a Canadian National Steamships liner sunk, salvaged, and rebuilt as a hospital ship. While the medical staff, including Whitern, were military, the ship's crew were members of the merchant navy.
