Exhibition photos and apology

First of all my sincere apologies - I somehow managed to leave Beatrix Brice Miller off the List I posted previously of Poets who Nursed, etc. during WW1.   I don't know how that happened because Beatrix was one of the very first on that list to go to France in 1914.   Beatrix and her mother both went - Beatrix's mother was a trained nurse and Beatrix went as a "Lady Helper".  Lady Helpers worked as orderlies, clerks, kitchen helpers - in fact anywhere that needed a spare pair of hands.
