“What did you do in the War Gran?” That's a question researcher Professor Kay Morris Matthews from the Eastern Institute of Technology wants more people to ask. She hass tracked down the stories of 64 Hawkes Bay women who served overseas in The Great War for an exhibition at the MTG Hawke’s Bay. The nurses, teachers and volunteers travelled far from the land they knew, to war-torn England, Egypt, Greece, and France.
Kay Morris Matthews wants to hear from anyone who can help with her research. Email KMorris@eit.ac.nz
