Nurse Edith Munro, died 12th December 1916, aged 23

If you have a chance, read through the Commonwealth War Graves Commission List of Female Casualties of the First World War.  There is a long list of women who served in some capacity during WW1 - these women have been overlooked for far too long but recognition is at last coming their way.

One of those to be commemorated on International Women's Day 8th March 2016 is Edith Hilda Munro, a nurse from London who died on 12th December 1916, aged 23.
