Notes

Catherine Lethbridge joined the Australian Army Nursing Service at Enoggera Military Hospital, Brisbane in December 1917. In September 1918 she embarked from Sydney for Rabaul as a Staff Nurse with Reinforcements for the Australian Naval and Military Expeditionary Force (the only other nurse was Mary Maclean from Bowen). Catherine was promoted to Sister on arrival, and in May 1919 to Head Sister, and returned to Australia six months later.
