Leaving for the War

Sister A. Chapman, who has resigned from the District Trained Nursing Society, was born in South Australia, but trained as a nurse in the Perth Hospital. She did district nursing in Adelaide in 1912 and 1913, and was among the first nurses to leave in 1914 for war service abroad. From Egypt she went in a hospital ship to Gallipoli, and later served in England and India. Afterwards she went in a hospital ship to Mesopotamia and Salonika. Sister Chapman rejoined the D.T.N.S. in 1925, and has been at Glenelg for seven years.
