Thanks Siobhan

about two months - just collected a bit here and there

it is frustrating that here in Australia there is not a war memorial

that has any of these women's names on it

I hope that in some way this helps

Hi Jennifer

Just incase you're not aware of it - Neil Smith has compiled a fairly complete list of members of the AANS (although I know of 2 nurses so far that aren’t included) in his book:

‘The Australian Army Nursing Service’ – A Short History with WW1 Nominal Roll & Award Citations – by Lieut Col NC Smith (1996)

Narelle HOBBES was another Australian nurse in the QAIMNS – her story is told through her letters in: ‘Oceans of Love’ by Melanie Oppenheimer (2006) - a brilliant read.

Travelling with her to England to join the QAIMNS were Rose Kirkaldie, Elsie Welman, Sylvia Bell & Kathleen Fitzpatrick. Rose & Elsie served with her in Malta.

[Narelle, born NSW, died 10/5/1918 at sea]

The following members of the QAIMNS also died during the war years:

Edith BLAKE, born Sydney, died at sea 26/2/1918, age 32

May DICKSON, born Qld, died 4/10/1917 Melbourne, age 37

Nellie Mabel SAW, born Albany, WA, died 31/3/1919 WA, age 29

Myrtle Elizabeth WILSON, born Fitzroy, Vic, died 23/12/1915 France, age 38

The following members of the QAIMNS returned to Australia on the ‘Osterley’ (embarked 21/5/1919):

Nurse:

E.B. BRECHT (NSW)

D.M. CRAIKE (WA)

D. DEACON (Fremantle)

Ada FORD (Sydney) – mentioned in dispatches – Matron of Waiora Rest Home, Malvern, Vic in 1921

E.B. GREEVE (Tas)

Olivia Annie LOWREY (NSW)

E. MUNDEN (Melbourne)

G.A. NYE

B.M. POOLE (Adelaide)

F.J. REARSDON (Sydney)

J. ROSS-RUSSEL (Vic)

V. SCOTT (Adelaide)

M.A. SCOTT (Fremantle)

A.G. SUTHERLAND (Melbourne)

M.A. WARD (Fremantle)

A.E.O WILLIAMS (Perth)

E.H. WILLIAMS (Sydney)

Staff Nurse:

McGRATH, Mary (Sydney)

Sister:

E.V. DONALDSON (Melbourne) – later married MATHESON

[VAD Nurse R.M. LOWICK was also on board traveling to Sydney]

A few others I’ve come across:

Sister SCANLAN (RRC) was an Australian nurse with the QAIMNS in Egypt in 1918

QAIMNS Nurse B.F. BUTLER returned to Australia on the ‘Katoomba’, embarking 7/8/1919 (for Tasmania)

QAIMNS Sister R.G.I. BOTTLE embarked at Cairo 1/4/1919 on the ‘Kildonian Castle’ & disembarked in Perth, WA 28/4/1919. She had left Australia 15/5/1915.

I had been chasing up on the nurses that worked for Lady Rachel Dudley's Australian Voluntary Hospitals in Wimereux & St Nazaire (France) - but haven't put a list together yet - too many other projects on the go I'm afraid.

Anyway, it's good to see someone else taking an interest in our ladies.

Cheers, Frev

No, sorry Jennifer. You've been doing such a great job of collecting data, that I was kind of hoping by mentioning it, that you might take it under your wing.......................

French Red Cross

Australian women known to have served with this unit – 23

twenty trained civilian nurses who volunteered in Australia in 1916 for service in French hospitals

Jennifer - a bit of extra info for you on this (from Oppenheimer's book):

"Even the Australian Red Cross sent twenty trained nurses to France in 1916. Called the Bluebirds because of their distinctive uniforms, these 'gifts for France' worked in hospitals and casualty clearing stations attached to the French Red Cross."

Also:

"Others volunteered their services for the YWCA or the British and French Red Cross as VADs, and worked for little or no pay in the convalescent homes in England, Paris, Rome and Sicily."

Jennifer,

Here’s another lady for your records.

ROSE ANN SWEENEY, Newcastle, NSW, Australia.

Staff Nurse with QAIMNS Reserve (File WO 399/8135 at the UK National Archives in Kew).

Next of kin (father) J Sweeney, same address.

Rose arrived in the UK from New South Wales on 10th February 1916. She was presumably a member of QAIMNSR before leaving Australia as her records state her first army pay was on 18/12/1915. Despite this, her formal agreement to serve with QAIMNSR is dated 23/2/1916.

Postings: 11 Gen Hosp Etaples from 4 Apr 1916; 61 CCS from July 1917, 11 Stn Hosp from 9/9/1917; period of leave 27/3/1918 – 9/4/1918; 74 Gen Hosp from 16/4/1918; on sick leave 16/5/1918 – 22/5/1918; the Nurses’ Hostel, Abbeville 13/8/1918 [leave?]; 43 CCS from 21/8/1918; 19 CCS from 29/10/1918 to 31/3/1919. Returned to England for repatriation to Australia on 15/4/1919. While awaiting transport to Australia [on the Osterley departed on 21/5/1919 from Tilbury] she was in charge of a medical ward at the Royal Herbert Hospital, Woolwich.

Regards,

Siobhan

STAFF NURSE ELMA CONSTANCE APSLEY LOWE

Staff Nurse Elma Constance Apsley Lowe was a member of the Australian Army Nursing Service (AANS) from 1 November 1915 and joined Number 2 Sea Transport Unit as a Masseuse, after graduating from the University of Sydney. Staff Nurse Lowe served on Masseuse Duty aboard the Hospital Ships 'Karoola' and 'Nestor', travelling between Australia and the Suez area a number of times before being detached to 3 Australian Auxiliary Hospital, London, on 27 December 1916. Staff Nurse Lowe resigned her appointment in London on account of her marriage to Second Lieutenant (2/Lt) William Leith Gardiner Lamrock on 7 July 1917. Staff Nurse Lowe and 2/Lt Lamrock had been childhood friends before they met again at Mena House, Cairo, where he was convalescing. 2/Lt Lamrock, enlisted on 4 March 1915 with 12 Light Horse Regiment (LHR), was absorbed into 1 LHR at the Gallipoli Peninsula on 29 August 1915, and transferred to 1 Infantry Brigade on 22 November 1915. Wounded on numerous occasions, Lamrock saw action in Alexandria and France, and was repatriated to the Perham Downs facility where he convalesced from 2 October 1918. After leaving Australia on HMAT A29 'Suevic' on 12 June 1915 Lamrock and his wife returned to Australia on 9 February 1919. The beaded bag is presumed to have been purchased by the couple on their trip home to Australia.
