Comments

During World War I more 3,000 Australian nurses joined the waar effort; 2,546 served abroad with the Australian Army Nursing Service, while others served with organisations such as the Rec Cross. They ministered to the sick, wounded and dying in Egypt, Lemnos, Greece, Britain, India and on the Western Front, in hospitals, casualty clearing stations and on hospital transports.Many nurses were decorated for their bravery and by war's end 25 had given their lives.

Struck by the Perth Mint but issued exclusively by Australia Post in a PNC.
