Edith Lillian Dunstan was born in Orange in 1894 to Charles C. Dunstan and his wife Frances Ellen Dunstan. She completed her four years’ nurses training at Sydney Hospital and enlisted in February 1918. In June that year she was mobilised to No. 4 Australian General Hospital. Despite being nominated and accepted for the No 2 Sea Transport Section she did not embark, since she and other nurses were withdrawn from the Section by Defence prior to embarkation.
In 1930 Edith married Private James Stewart Campbell in Waverley. They lived in Northwood Road, Lane Cove.
Edith died in Newtown in 1944.
