Could anyone identify the type of nurse shown in the attached photograph?

I am assuming a nurse as her cap badge is definitely a cross.

The picture post card is part of my great Grandfather's collection and shows E.M.Kissack. She would appear to be the sister of a Gunner is the RFA called Charles Kissack probably from the Isle of Man.

My great Grandfather probably served with Charlie and certainly knew him in 1917 probably at camp in Canterbury.

He was wounded and spent time at the VAD Hospital in Mold, North Wales where presumably he would have been tended by VAD nurses.

A little more research leads me to believe the lady in the photograph is Edith May Kissack born 1892 and the older sister of Gunner Charles Kissack of the RFA.

Edith May apparently married a William Thomas Quayle in 1923.

He was a resident at the same. I do not think Edith May was there but was known to my great Grandfather as the sister of a Gunner he was serving with called Charles Kissack.

I can confirm the Manx connection - both Quayle and Kissack are indiginous Isle of Man surnames. I'll have a look in my archives to see what I might be able to turn up on Charles Kissack.
