Lemnos Nurse Evelyn Hutt's 1915 Map - Lemnos, Imbros, Tenedos and more

Lemnos, Imbro and Tenedos.

Tasmanian Nurse Evelyn Hutt served with the 3rd Australian General Hospital on Lemnos in 1915.
Amongst Evelyn's collecrtion of memorabilia treasured by her daighter, Ms Judith Gunnarsson, is a map dated August 1915.
It is Bartholomew's War Map of Italy and the Balkan States and appears to have been published as part of the British magazine, the National Review. Evelyn has even signed the map.
As well as Lemnos, Evelyn served on the Italian front towards the end of the war.
The map contains a number of interesting histoircal features. Above and below are reproduced some of my photographs of some of these details.
Thank you to Ms Judith Gunnarsson for sharing this beautiful map.
