Elaine Morrison and Carol Parry - This hospital for Foreign Services worked in France and Serbia and is well documented in the library of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons in Glasgow. Based initially in Troyes, France, this all-women Unit, working under the French Army, served briefly in Serbia and then established a large tented hospital in Salonica.
