Australian Nurses support the Lemnos Gallipoli Project

Matron Grace Wilson and the Australian nurses of the 3rd Australian General Hospital arrive on Lemnos, August 1915. AWM

Following a presentation by myself and Lee Tarlamis, the Federal Secretary of the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation, wrote an article on the Lemnos nurses in the national journal of the Federation.
We are in discussions with the ANMF to see how Australia's nurses can help and support our project to ensure the service of the Australian nurses on Lemnos is not forgotten.
They join with the Alfred Hospital Nurses League in supporting our project.
