Obituary

Sister Carrie De Groot who was trained at St. Vincent's Hospital and who, under instructions from "the capable' sisters, developed into a nurse with special qualifications for her task and later became associated with the work at the Base Hospital, St. Kilda road, has now left Australia for war nursing, in company with Sister Devine of Geelong who has acquaintances and friends here. It will be interesting to further learn of the well being and the well-doing of these young women. The De Groot family are certainly playing their part, having, in addition to the sister, one son and brother, Ray, who is taking on his share of actual warfare.
