Description- Informal portrait of Mrs Mary Borden-Turner, the founder of Mobile Surgical Hospital No 1. An American woman married to a British Army officer, she established her hospital to operate in the French section of the lines on the Western Front. In 1917-18 she employed, through the Australian Red Cross, four Australians to nurse wounded French soldiers at her hospital, known in French as Hopital Chirurgical Mobile No. 1. It was situated first at Beverau, twenty miles from Dunkirk. These were Sisters Hilda Loxton, Minnie Hough, Wallace, and Lynette Crozier, who had all been among a group of twenty civilian trained nurses who volunteered in Australia in 1916 for service in France. Mrs Borden-Turner's chauffeur driven car bore a red cross on the side (not visible here)."
