The only one we have is very crappy... Mark had it on the only other ID'd model we have the this lady...  It's crappy... but I can read it.  Second watch from the left on top.

Doh! Mark beat me to it!

Well, looks like they call that a "Clara Barton" in the first part of the copy and maybe a "Nurse's Barton" by the watch.

BTW, Clara Barton helped establish the Red Cross in the U.S. after the Civil War (war of Agression for those in the South).

Daca do you have a clean copy of the ad above?  I can't read crapola on that one other than Nurses....

No, but am used to reading co-workers hand writing.  Anything clearer than a prescription I can usually translate.

Will see if this posts up.

In response "No, I am just used to deciphering the handwriting of co-workers.  Anything clearer than a prescription I can usually translte."
