Nursing Sister Agnes Estelle Alpaugh

Nursing Sister Agnes Estelle Alpaugh served in the Canadian Army Medical Corps during WW1. Her military file mention that she received the British War Medal, although there was not a long period of time between her enlistment and her death. It is very unlikely that she went to UK and came back to Canada in October.

She was born in 1892 and enlisted on July 4th, 1918.

Died on October 12th, 1918 from Spanish  flu (pneumonia) in a military hospital in New – Brunswick at the age of 26. It was her second attack of this disease.

Her medal (probably entitled only to the British War medal), Memorial Plaque and Memorial Scroll were sent to her father, Robert Alpaugh

The Memorial Cross was sent to her mother at the same adress.

If you know more information on this lady, please leave me message so I can add it to her small biography
