TUNISIA. Jacques Joseph Jaffeux, military... - Lot 367 - Conan Belleville Hôtel d'Ainay
TUNISIA. Jacques Joseph Jaffeux, military nurse. 6 letters to his parents, 20 pp. in-8. Tunis, 1899-1900. Amazing correspondence on the life of a military nurse. Excerpt: "Not a day goes by at Belvedere without someone breaking his pipe if you see that it's terrible. If you're on duty at night and a patient bothers you too much, if he's ready to snap, we don't give him anything, we let him do it once he's dead, we wrap him in a sheet, we put two of them in a stretcher and we take him to room 13, which is the dissection room. There we have fun with it. You have to be used to it or else you get sick of it right away, and if the elders see that you are acting disgusted, they roll you over the stiffs, which is not very amusing [...]". Various documents are attached.
