The gathering of over 125 members, guests and community representatives was addressed by the New Zealand Consular General Mr Daniel Taylor. He spoke of the joint military service history of New Zealand and Australian nurses, with a particular emphasis on the importance of the ‘front line angels’ stories being told, their achievements acknowledged, and their sacrifices recognised.
“Military nurses often worked in remote and dangerous places under difficult conditions, and such service does not come without a cost. Some nurses never returned home, losing their lives to disease or at the hands of the enemy,” said Mr Taylor.
