My grandfather, Dr James Byrne Coleman went out at his own expense with Lord Iveaghs Irish Field Hospital. He was most insistent that it included female nurses. He was awarded CMG.
Over 1,000 nurses went out.Miss Mc Donnell was awarded the Royal Red Cross.
Read Anthony Kinsella, ‘Lord Iveagh’s Irish Hospital in South Africa 1900
or www.nickcoleman.net/homepages/treedata/b...20War%20Hospital.pdf
I have photos of the field hospital on the move.
