    In the early 1960s, Anne Watts was a newly qualified nurse, eager to use her skills and with an adventurous spirit. At the first opportunity she set sail for Canada, to work in the remote stations in the frozen north of the country. She found a placement easily, one of only a couple of women to work among the indigenous peoples, who were then called Eskimos. Anne later headed for Alice Springs in the Australian outback.

    Anne Watts grew up in a small village in north Wales in the 1940s. Inspired by school geography lessons that told of far-off lands, she broke out of the conventional options open to women in post-war Britain, defying her father’s dated views. She trained as a nurse and midwife, joined the Save the Children Fund and was posted to Vietnam in 1967.
