Stirling, Alice Mary (1885–1925)

Miss Alice Mary Stirling was the fourth daughter of the late Sir Edward Stirling and of Lady Stirling, of Mount Lofty. For the past two years Miss Stirling had been travelling abroad in company with the Misses Russell. She was an indefatigable war worker, and took part in many movements in aid of wounded soldiers. She began an active career in that respect soon after the outbreak of hostilities, travelling from London to Rouen (France), where she was engaged in canteen work. On returning to London she joined up with the staff in St. Dunstan's Hostel for blinded soldiers and sailors. After having spent some time at that work, Miss Stirling joined the Scottish Women's Hospital, and she acted as an orderly in the hospital near Salonika. Among her other duties there was the driving of motor vehicles. After a period there she returned to England, and took up work in Dartford. She came back to Australia about the time the war ended. She left for Europe some two years ago.
