Liz in Eastbourne

There is an exhibition on until 8 December at Oxford House, Bethnal Green, about Dame Maud McCarthy, the Australian nurse who was matron-in-chief of the British Expeditionary Force in France, and whose diaries Sue Light transcribed.  I haven't been but it has been recommended to me by my sister, who's a nurse.  More details here:

Thank you for sharing Liz

Maud was a truly amazing lady and it's great to know her story is being brought to the notice of so many, and especially the newer generations.


I hope you manage a visit - I'd love to see it, but I'm afraid distance is a bit of a problem!


I'll always be grateful to our dear departed Sue for transcribing Maud's diaries, which have been used so often by myself, and I'm sure, many others.

Cheers, Frev
