Ida Pearce joined the Australian Army Nursing Service in November 1917 and nursed returned soldiers at the Rosemount Military Hospital at Windsor, Brisbane. Twelve months later she enlisted for overseas service in India, where she worked as a Staff Nurse at British hospitals in Bombay and Lahore. She returned to Australia in September 1919.

In July 1928 she was belatedly awarded the prestigious India General Service Medal.
