Nurses on Lemnos 1915 - Free Lecture by Dr Kirsty Harris
As part of the Greek Orthodox Community Open Lecture series, Melbourne University's Dr Kirsty Harris will be lecturing on the Australian military nurses on Lemnos in 1915.
The free lecture will take place at 7.00 pm, this Thursday, 24th April 2014.
It will be held at the Ithacan Philanthropic Society, L2, 329 Elisabeth Street Melbourne.
Dr Harris' lecture will tell the story of the Australian nurses serving in the Australian Army Nursing Service and the British Queen Alexandra Imperial Military Nursing Service Reserve in 1915 who worked on, or transited through, the Aegean island of Lemnos during the Gallipoli campaign. This presentation outlines their work and their experiences during the unsuccessful landing on the peninsula. Dr Harris' PHD won the CEW Bean Prize.
All those interested in the Lemnos link to Anzac are urged to attend.
The Committee thanks to the Greek Orthodox Community for organising this important lecture.
