Notes

Helen Pierce enlisted as a Staff Nurse in the Australian Army Nursing Service and left Sydney with other nurse reinforcements in June 1917 for Salonika in northern Greece. She nursed British and Allied soldiers at several tent hospitals but became debilitated by the harsh climate and poor rations and was evacuated to Australia in December 1918.
