** Story about two contrasting women of the Great War**
One, Lucy Toller, was a distinguished professional nurse who served in France throughout the Great War, won a Military Medal for her courage and was later treated disgracefully by the British Army. Among the first nurses to land in France in 1914 she worked in all the various levels of hospital and on ambulance trains.
The other, Emily Kemp, was an intrepid China traveller who provided medical help to the French army in the Verdun sector and went on to give a chapel to Somerville College, Oxford. An accomplished artist, she wrote extensively about her travels and fought passionately for girls' education in China.Views: 212 | Enquiries: 1
