Hi there David and Kate

Fantastic that the two of you have connected here! The matron of 3AAH Dartford in 1918 was Matron Bessie Pocock. There are some photos of her in the AWM collection if you need to compare faces.

Let me know if I can help with anything else on Mary (May).

I am also researching a relative - an Australian nurse, Ethel Lloyd, serving with the 38th at Genoa from mid 1918 to the end of the war. I have basic information and some of her records. Anyone know anything about her?
