History

Dorothy Dick was born in 1905 in either Bearsden or Milngavie to a fairly wealthy family. Her childhood was affected by World War I, and thus, she does not have many records from that time. At the age of 13, Dorothy began to attend the St Leonard's School for Girls in St Andrews. Despite her status, she never married and instead began working as a nurse in the 1930s. In 1938/39, Dorothy passed her driving test and was added to the roll of ambulance drivers for the St Andrew's Ambulance Association, Glasgow. Dorothy was a very companionable person and took many holidays with her friends and family. She kept many well-organized photo albums with pictures of her vacations, family, friends, and many dogs.
