I am very grateful to Mrs Dorothy Clare, who is very supportive of my project. Mrs Clare reminded me that I have not yet mentioned Kate Adie's book about women during the First World War - "Fighting on the Home Front" which is published by Hodder and Stoughton. I have long been an admirer of Kate's work - both as a war correspondent and as a writer.
Mrs Clare sent me a cutting from "The Daily Telegraph" featuring a photograph of Lena Ashwell who is featured in Kate Adie's book.
Lena's story sounds fascinating. I shall add her to the list and find out more.
