The article Maverick female war doctors battled exclusion-1 (text here) describes the work during World War I of Dr Vera Scantlebury (later Scantlebury-Brown), originally of Melbourne, in London treating seriously wounded soldiers. Historian Heather Sheard wants to have an honour board at the Australian War Memorial to recognise the work of female war doctors during the war. The Australian Dictionary of Biography has an entry on Dr Scantlebury-Brown, as well as entries on Dr Elsie Dalyell and Dr Mary de Garis, also mentioned in the article.
