Sister Ella Cooke
Since our last issue we have received more news of the sad death of Sister Cooke. It was by accident . She was at No. 17 Hospital at Alexandria, and Sisters who have been there will understand how it took place. She got through the wire fence hurriedly and walked straight into the train. She was on her way out to dinner with a friend. Sister E. Wilson wrote that Sister Cooke was a very great favourite at No. 17, where she had been all the time she was m Egypt. She was so happy, and played and sang well and was always ready to give pleasure. Her many friends m New Zealand will, we are sure, be very grieved to hear of the sad termination of so useful a life. Fortunately it is probable that she was killed instantaneously, and so did not suffer. The following account from the " British Journal of Nursing " is of much interest :—
