I would like to thank everyone who has been in touch - in particular Matt Jacobsen from America who runs the amazing website OldMagazineArticles.com. Matt has been extremely supportive and helpful. One of Matt's suggestions was that I research Elsie Janis, an American entertainer who went to entertain the troops.
Poet and teacher of law Stephen Cribari has suggested that I research Kathleen Scott, the British Sculptress who worked with Derwent Wood on facial reconstruction during WW1. Stephen has been inspirational and supportive from the beginning.
Over the coming months, I hope to collect as many biographical details as possible about these and other inspirational WW1 women for an exhibition to be held at some stage during the First World War Centenary Commemorations.
If anyone has an inspirational woman they would particularly like me to add, please get in touch on firstname.lastname@example.org
