the heroic life of a world war II nurse


 peter fenton

As a feisty teenager, Olive Weston lied about her age and joined the US Army the moment war was declared in the Pacific. Trained as a nurse she was sent to 12th Station Hospital in Townsville. As the war increased in intensity conditions became frantic.


Olive sat with dying soldiers, pretending to be mother, sister or girlfriend. She was determined they would not die alone. Three years later she was called in Melbourne's Victoria barracks. After signing some papers and shaking some hands Olive walked out a civilian. She was eighteen years old.
