  The following women were ‘noticed’ {dates of ‘The Times’ also shown}. Details in brackets are from Red Cross record cards and Q.A.I.M.N.S.R. records. ;-

Great work collecting all these names of women who worked at Endell Street! I knew of many of them - and of course Jennian Geddes has collected many of the names previously - but some of the names are new. Just in case anyone else is interested you can find out the story of the hospital in my book Endell Street.
