From Gallipoli to the Western Front – Australia’s trained nurses were there. Follow Sister Florence Whiting on her 4 year journey, from departure on the troopship Kyarra to tours of duty in Egypt, Lemnos and France.
Flo and her fellow nursing sisters are outnumbered and out of their element, their skill dismissed by senior officers. Against a backdrop of lantern-lit wards, bright Mediterranean skies and busy, muddy fields, we see Flo fight to find her place.
Based on meticulous research, Through These Lines is an honest account of women in war. There is humour, anger, hope, sadness and frustration. But most of all there is courage – Flo sees her task through to the end.
