Not exactly the same thing, but this might interest you.

One of the women mentioned is Elizabeth "Lizzie" Johnston from Anstruther. She died in rather mysterious circumstances, and there is a little book about her, published in 1920.

As always a great response. Thank you all for chipping in with great facts and details. Maureen that's really made all the difference to her story, thank you.

A fascinating website. Elsie Inglis is still honoured here in Edinburgh, and there are moves afoot to put up statues to her and to other distinguished Edinburgh women of the past. Wherever you go in Edinburgh the statues are of men, men, men.

Everybody knows about the war on the Western Front in WWI but other theatres of war are less well known. I come from a fishing village in east Fife and in both world wars our steam-drifters were called up for service in the Royal Naval Reserve. Some were sunk in the Adriatic by Austrian submarines operating out of Trieste. Some were used to evacuate our troops from Gallipoli. One of our local skippers ended the war with the Italian Medal for Valour, the French Croix de Guerre and the Serbian Gold Medal.

Talking of women serving in Serbia in WWI, a very different kind of woman was the Englishwoman Flora Sandes, who went out there originally as an unqualified nurse with the Anglo-American Unit, but later she became the first Western woman to enlist as a soldier in WWI, ending up as a captain in the Serbian Army, taking lives instead of saving them. I have a book about her.

Flora Sandes, I've recently discovered, is my husband's 3rd cousin twice removed! What an amazing woman... Lots online about her  ;) and her story doesn't just end at the end of WWI. Although, everything I've read plays down her family a bit, she actually descends from rich Irish landowners.
