Personnel of QAINS were the first women to arrive at the Normandy beach head. The first draft arrived on 13 June, seven days after the initial landings of the Allied Expeditionary Force. Their purpose was the setting up of a General hospital to house 600 patients. With the assistance of Pioneers and the Royal Army Medical Corps the hospital was quickly established.
