Medals and other rewards Florence Nightingale was an English nurse who became a national heroine during the Crimean War when she set up a hospital for soldiers. She became known as the 'Lady with the Lamp' because she used to walk round the hospital in the evening with a lamp, to check that everything was in order. She made nursing a profession and a respectable job for women. In 1912 the International Red Cross League established the Florence Nightingale Medal as the highest international award to nurses.

Clothes Lots of ordinary clothes got their names thanks to people. Lord Cardigan led the Light Brigade in the Crimea in the war of 1853 – 56.

They have a shorter name today – “wellies”.
