Gundagai Nurse

GUNDAGAI NURSE.
It may not be generally known (says the ' Gundagai Times') that Miss Annie Jane
Matchett, who was one of the fourteen nurses to sail from Sydney last week with the Second New South Wales Contingent, is a daughter of Mr. William Matchett, J.P., of South Gundagai. Her age is 26. She was born in Park street, Sydney, and spent three years and a half as a nurse in Prince Alfred Hospital, besides 18 months in private nursing. Her father is delighted at the step she has taken. Miss Matchett is a clever nurse, and to our knowledge possesses the highest credentials. This is self-evident in view of her selection in such an important mission, as Miss Gould, who has been matron of Sydney Hospital, was determined that none but the nurses known to her as being thoroughly qualified and at the head of their profession, could be taken on such perilous work, where so much skill in nursing is needed.
