The Lemnos Gallipoli Memorial - Nurses Pay Tribute


It has come to our notice that the Alfred Hospital Nurses League Inc has publicized a report and some photographs from the unveiling of our Lemnos Gallipoli Memorial in August 2015.
In the Spetember 2015 edition of their Newsletter, the League published a small story about the Memorial in the Message from the League President, Ms Helen Hamilton. This is reproduced below:
Excerpt from the Alfred Hospital Nurses League Inc, Newsletter, September 2015.

They also reproduced two photographs from the launch of our Memorial in August last year. They should members of the League as well as the President of the Royal Brisbane Hospital Past Nurses Association at the Memorial. They are reproduced below.
The Alfred Hospital Nurses League assisted our Committee with research and the promotion and sale of our Memorial Badges. Thank you to the League.
We hope that nurses from across Australia will visit our Lemnos Gallipoli Memorial into the future as one of the major memorials dedicated to the role of nurses in Australia's Anzac story.
