Information:
Daughter of William and Ellen Munro, of St. Patrick's Rd., Scottsville, Pietermaritzburg, Natal. Her brother also died on service. Served in connection with the Forces engaged against the Germans in West Africa. Afterwards she joined the South African Expeditionary Force for France, accompanied by her two brothers. Before reaching England she served on board a Hospital Ship, off Gallipoli. On arriving in England she was sent to France, where she contracted pneumonia which obliged her to return to England. After having partly recovered from the effects of pneumonia, she desired to visit Scotland, the home of her father, but was unable to travel farther North than Glasgow. There she was taken under the care of those who had known her father; and although she received all the attention that medical skill could give her, complications set in which it was impossible to combat. She died on 6th April, 1917, at the age of 25 years, and was buried with Military Honours in the Western Necropolis, Glasgow, where a Memorial Stone, designed by Mr. Herbert Baker, has been erected to her memory by the South African Comforts Committee, under the personal direction of the Viscountess Gladstone.
