    Am researching this Nursing Sister. Any further information about her is requested.

    All the information I have on her is on this website, if you get her WW1 file from the National Archives in Ottawa you could find more or you do have the option to look at the war diaries of unit in which she served

    I am remembering the nurses, the other CAMC members and crew of the Llandovery Castle on the UK Imperial War Museum’s Lives of the First World War site. I share your view that their sacrifice should be remembered and commemorated. Is it OK if I attach your photos to her story?
