Career nurse served in pioneering wartime plastic surgery unit
With the rank of lieutenant nursing sister in the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps, she sailed for Britain during the Battle of the Atlantic to tend burn victims and the wounded. She continued nursing until 1986
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S11
Margery (Bunny) Cambon QUAIL, a woman of resolute good cheer, was one of the stalwart Canadian nurses to cross the treacherous, enemy-infested Atlantic waters during the Second World War. She worked with plastic surgeons in hospitals in southwest England to care for badly burned pilots and civilians wounded in German bombing raids.
"I am quite sure that her experience as a nurse in England, caring for a great many very badly injured victims of war, led her to conclude that she would never, ever, feel sorry for herself, no matter whatever happened to her. And that is exactly how she lived her life," wrote Austen CAMBON, her brother, in an e-mail tribute.
She came from a military family. Her father, George CAMBON, was a Scottish immigrant who played in several orchestras in the eastern United States before crossing the border and joining the Royal Canadian Horse Artillery Band in Kingston, Ontario That is where he met and married Lucy DUFFIELD, whose father was a colonel in the Royal Ulster Rifles and had been garrison commander in Jamaica before bringing his family to Canada in the early years of the last century. Soon after their marriage, the CAMBONs moved to Quebec City. He was a professional musician in the regimental band of the Royal 22nd Regiment under the command of future governor-general Georges VANIER.
Margery, the eldest of four children, was born in the final year of the First World War. She once explained that "my mother was called Bunny and she called me Bunny," but others say she was given the name because she had large ears, a trait inherited from the DUFFIELD side of the family. Noreen was born in 1919, Ken in 1923 and Austen in 1932.
The CAMBONs lived on Cartier Avenue near Battlefields Park in Quebec City. Margery went to nearby St. George's School and then Commissioner's High School, graduating in 1936. She trained at Jeffery Hale Hospital, graduating in 1939. On February 8, 1940, five months after Canada declared war on Germany, she enlisted in the nursing service of the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps, which embraced the three branches of the military: navy, army and air force. Given that the army was bred in her bones, she elected to serve as a commissioned army officer with the rank of lieutenant nursing sister.
Along with another nurse from Quebec City, she made her way to Halifax in December of 1940, according to a short memoir she provided for The Military Nurses of Canada: Recollections of Canadian Military Nurses, edited by E.A. Landells. By the time they arrived in Halifax, their ship had already sailed, so the two single women boarded a mail ship - which she later joked had plenty of males - and crossed the ocean in the days before the advent of full escort convoys. "It took 11 days" and it was "cold and miserable," she told Wilma BLOKHUIS of the Oakville Beaver in September of 1991.
In England, she was a reinforcement for the 15th Canadian General Hospital at Bramshott, Surrey, which had been established with officers and staff in June of 1940. Dorothy Macham, who had graduated from Women's College Hospital School of Nursing in Toronto in 1932 and had joined the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps shortly after the war began, was already there. When Stewart Gordon, one of the earliest Canadian plastic surgeons, set up a plastic surgery unit in November of 1941 at Rooksdown House, Park Prewett Hospital, near Basingstoke, Hampshire, he took Lt. CAMBON and Lt. Macham with him.
The work was harrowing, but there was also time for fun and Friendships and, for Lt. CAMBON, the chance to own and ride her first bicycle. Rationing meant that cars were mostly reserved for military and official use, and buses were scarce in the countryside. While she rarely talked after the war about the horrors she had seen as a nurse, she did tell her children how she had always wanted a bike when she was growing up in Quebec City, but her parents were too poor to indulge her fancy.
Six months after Lt. CAMBON enlisted, her younger brother Ken (obituary March 17, 2007) joined up, lying about his age to enlist in the Royal Rifles of Canada in July of 1940, just before his 17th birthday. His regiment was shipped to Hong Kong to defend the British colony in an ill-fated stand against the Japanese. After the Canadian, British and Hong Kong regiments surrendered on Christmas Day, 1941, he was taken prisoner and spent the next 44 months in horrific conditions in Japanese PoW camps, including, as a final torture, helping to dig a huge pit late in the war to serve as a mass grave for himself and his fellow prisoners if the feared Allied invasion occurred. His family knew he was missing, but it was a long time before they had official word.
Meantime, Lt. CAMBON's younger sister, Noreen, had finished high school in Quebec City and moved to Hamilton to train as a nurse. When she learned that Ken had been captured by the Japanese, she quit nursing school and joined the Royal Canadian Air Force, Women's Division. Trained as a radar specialist, she was stationed in Newfoundland, then in Britain, where she sometimes met up with her older sister. After the war, she trained as a nurse.
That left only the youngest CAMBON in Quebec City. "I was only about 7 years old when my brother and my two sisters left home to serve in World War Two," said Austen. "Their absence serving our country abroad for the next five years meant that I really did not get to know them… until very much later on."
In May of 1943, Lt. CAMBON's unit moved to the Basingstoke Neurological and Plastic Surgery Hospital in Hackwood Park, on the estate of Lord Camrose, with Lt. Macham as the "in charge" nurse. The two Canadian nurses had become close Friends and, when Lt. Macham was invited to Buckingham Palace in 1945 to receive the Royal Red Cross Medal for her services during the war, she invited Lt. CAMBON to accompany her.
It was also at Basingstoke that Lt. CAMBON met her future husband, Sergeant John QUAIL. He was from Winnipeg and had gone overseas as a motorcycle instructor with the Canadian Provost Corps, a company of military police made up of volunteers from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. By all accounts, Sgt. QUAIL was a bit of a lad, a carefree adventurer more interested in a good time than in treading the straight and narrow. He broke his wrist in a motorcycle accident and ended up on Lt. CAMBON's ward. "He took a fancy to me," as she described it later. "We met over a bedpan" is the way he liked to tell the tale.
They were married on December 11, 1943, in St. Stephen's Church in Twickenham, Surrey. Her uncle, John DUFFIELD, who had been a chaplain in the First World War and had then become a canon in the Church of England, officiated.
By this stage of the war, small contingents of Canadian nurses were serving on the continent and Lt. CAMBON wanted to join them. As a married woman, however, she was refused permission to cross the Channel. "They had made this ruling that you could not go if you were married because they had too many girls becoming pregnant who had got married," she told the Oakville Beaver in 1991. "It was a bit of a hassle sending them home, and all that jazz."
In September of 1945, the QUAILs returned to Canada. She and Noreen were both still in uniform when their emaciated brother stepped off a train in Quebec City, finally home from the war. She had last seen him when he was 16. "When Ken left, he was just a little guy, he was always kind of short, and I couldn't believe how much he had grown even though he was malnourished," Margery QUAIL told the Oakville Beaver. "He would have been much bigger had he had proper food," she said, ever the nurse. "It was a great thing to see him back alive."
The QUAILs settled in Toronto. In the next five years, Ms. QUAIL had three babies - Susan, Judi and Charlie - each about two years apart in age, followed after a gap of six years by David in 1957. As Mr. QUAIL pursued various ventures from Vancouver to Toronto, from starting a natural-sponge enterprise to selling paint and cars to operating a tractor trailer across the country, Ms. QUAIL was the moral and financial backbone of the family, raising the children and working as a nurse at Vancouver General Hospital, and at Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital. She finally agreed to retire from nursing in 1986, at 68.
About five years ago, Ms. QUAIL began to have memory problems, similar to the dementia issues that affected Noreen and Ken, who died of Alzheimer's disease a year ago. She and her husband continued to live at home until she had a bad fall in 2003. They moved into a retirement home in Oakville and remained together until Mr. QUAIL died of prostate cancer in January of 2004. By last summer, Ms. QUAIL had lost her hearing. After breaking her hip in a second fall, she moved, in August, into a veterans home named in honour of her wartime nursing colleague, Dorothy Macham, where she celebrated her 90th birthday a month ago with family, Friends and a glass or two of white wine.
Margery Cambon QUAIL was born in Quebec City on February 15, 1918. She died of complications from dementia at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre in Toronto on March 21, 2008. She was 90. Predeceased by her husband, John, and brother Kenneth CAMBON, Ms. QUAIL is survived by her children Susan, Judi, Charles and David. She also leaves her sister Noreen and brother Austen, plus seven grandchildren.
