By May 16, 2014No Comments

Stawell-born nurse Margaret Skidmore was living in Lucknow when she enlisted in December 1916. She embarked from Sydney in June the following year and served in Salonika in Greece.

After the war Nurse Skidmore undertook further training with the Babies of the Empire Society in Earls Court Road, London (later the Mothercraft Training Society).

On repatriation to Australia in 1919 she relocated to Queensland, where she became Matron at Chillagoe General Hospital in 1920, followed by Alpha Hospital, which she left in August 1924 for Foxborough Hospital at Toogoolawah, near Brisbane.
