Surely a most Inspirational Woman

On the Internet site www.derniersveterans.free.fr during my background research for the forthcoming exhibitions, I noticed the name of Baronne Henri Cottu, who was born Marie-Louise Sophie-Elise DAUPRAT.  She married Baron Henri Cottu in Paris in 1876.

On the website it stated that she had nursed during the 1870 - 1871 War and also during the 1914 - 1918 War and that she had received Palmes d'Or medals from the French Service de Sante Militaire.

I should love to find out more about this amazing woman but I am finding it difficult.   If anyone has any information, please get in touch.
