A nursing sister crouched at the head of a soldier laid out on a stretcher, with her hands on the man's head. Commissioned some time after the war, this work was a belated recognition of the important role women played during the war, particularly the nursing service. The model for the nursing sister was Ethel Ferris from Armidale, Sydney. She was stationed in Port Moresby with the 2/1st Australian General Hospital, at the same time as the artist.
