Formerly of the Coast Hospital.

Sister Dickson is a Queenslander, and originally came from Brisbane. She received her training in mental nursing at the Hospital for Insane, Callan Park, and her general training at the Coast Hospital, Little Bay. She was one of the very earliest to offer her services on the out-break of the war, and left with the first batch of Australian nurses for the front.

Sister Dickson was for some time on transport duty, working between Malta, Egypt, and Lemnos, and later on went to England, and finally to France, where she was attached to a casualty clearing station.

For the past six months Sister Dickson has been acting as secretary to England's Matron-in-Chief at the headquarters in Horseferry-road London.
