Commended in the Local History Project Award, 2019 Victorian Community History Awards. This award recognises activities that enhance access to records of significance to local communities. 

WW1 is the backdrop for this book, and the centenary of ANZAC , its catalyst.

It is a collection of vignettes of 47 women who volunteered for service abroad to look after ‘our boys’.  Broken in health, they were invalided home to recuperate at Osborn House, Geelong, Victoria’s first Red Cross Rest Home for war worn nurses.  Some never fully recovered while others went on to lead full and productive lives.

Here are their inspirational stories.
