Sister Eva Isabel MacDONALD ARRC, 1879 – 1968

Connection with the Hunter region

Sister MacDonald’s name appears on the honour roll of West Maitland Presbyterian Church so at some point before the War she would have been a member of the congregation.  She was born at Southgate on the Clarence River. At the time of enlistment her address was Sydney and that of her next-of-kin was in Waverley.   Gary Mitchell alerted me to this nurse during his research on honour rolls – see Newcastle Morning Herald & Miners Advocate, 11 March 1920.
