Roll of Honour for Nurses

The Thames Hospital Board has established a Rollof honour to Thames nurses who have gone on active service There was a large gathering of townsfolk to witness the unveiling of the roll, which was placed m the main entrance of the hospital. Regret was expressed that Miss Stewart was unable to attend. Speeches were made paying a high tribute to the nurses and the noble work they were doing. Some speakers took the opportunity of saying that not only those who had gone to the front, but those who remained at home were all doing their duty, and of urging that recitation should be provided for the latter. A new nurses' home is to be built, and a tennis court would be a good addition. The roll of honour contained the names of Miss Cora Anderson, now matron of Hornchurch Hospital; Sisters Mandeno, Hawkins, Eddy, Campbell, and Carruth,
