Sister Anzac - Amanda Rees

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:32 pm on 27 August 2015

With the 100 year commemorations of Gallipoli and Chunuk Bair we've heard a lot recently about the battles and sacrifice thousands of New Zealand men made in World War One. But we don't hear much about what women did. A theatre show about to open in Auckland, Sister Anzac, will shed more light on womens' stories of war, in particular the nurses who went to Gallipoli on the hospital ship, The Maheno.
