About the memorial: Photograph in a glazed wooden frame with a framed paper explanatory note and both her medals in separate frames-the QARANC Insignia Badge and the Royal Red Cross Medal. It might be suggested that this is not a war memorial as she died in her bed aged 70 in 1956. But she clearly emerged from the was with a war-induced disability, and she is on the IWM Register, so let her be admitted.
