Thames (NZ): Nurses of Thames Hospital - Page correction

For anyone who may have a copy of the book
NURSES OF THAMES, sorry to report I found an error today.

Page 34 regarding WWI Nurses - in error the wrong award was quoted for Cora ANDERSON and Lily EDDY. They did not receive the Serbia Cross. They both received the commendation where their services were brought to the attention of the SECRETARY OF STATE FOR WAR.
