Bernadette O’Meara – Nurse Bear


The unique Limited Edition Sister Bernadette Nurse Bear is a must have addition to any collection. Sister O’Meara’s uniform represents the ‘working dress’ of the Australian Army Nursing Service and includes zephyr grey dress with white collar, white veil and scarlet cape; her rank of Sister is shown by the stars or ‘pips’ worn on her epaulettes, which are accompanied by curved bronze ‘AUSTRALIA’ titles. She wears the Rising Sun badge at her throat as a brooch and the cloth badge of the Australian Army Nursing Service is displayed on her right sleeve. Sister Bernadette O’Meara stands 40cm in her working shoes and comes with certificate of authenticity. This bear is also supplied with a quality set of 3 swing mounted miniature replica medals, including the 1914-15 Star, British War Medal and Victory Medal which can be pinned on the uniform. This is the common set of medals that Australian veterans serving from Gallipoli to the end of the war would have been awarded. Only 10,000 worldwide.
