Army Nurses of the Great War

Enid Cherry trained at the Adelaide Hospital from 1913 to 1916 and a year later enlisted in the Australian Army Nursing Service to answer a call for Australian nurses to serve in under-staffed British hospitals. She served for 15 months in the 60th General Hospital at Salonika before contracting dysentery and being invalided home. During the 1920s Miss Cherry worked at the Wakefield Street Private Hospital before taking up the position of nursing sister at the Myer department store for 23 years until her retirement in 1952.
