|Nurses on Lemnos, 1915. AWM|
Come along and hear my presentation on Lemnos and its role in the Gallipoli campaign tonight (6th September 2016) at the Kilmore Historical Society.
I will touch on some local connections to the Lemnos story, including Kilmore Colonel James Burston, commander of the 7th AIF Brigade as well as some other local diggers who came to Lemnos. Also we will discuss the identity of the Australian nurse on the right of the photograph above. This has a local connection too.
My address will commence at approximately 8pm following the AGM of the Kilmore Historical Society. The meeting room will be open from 7.30pm. The talk will be followed by supper. Please feel free to attend if you are able.

Thanks to Barbara Wilson (Secretary of the Kilmore Historical Society) and to Liz Dillon-Hensby for the opportunity to give the address.
Liz - a qualified nurse - has been a keen supporter of our Memorial in Albert Park attending our unveiling last year as part of the re-enactment team led by Faye Threyfall.
