It is Christmas day in Zydarow, Poland, 1914 and Sister Violetta Thurston celebrates with roast horse and watery punch. Later, a soldier shows her the religious wooden icon in his pocket that was hit by a bullet and saved his life. This is one of 60 first-hand accounts from the female doctors and nurses serving abroad from 1914 to 1918, which together provide a moving commemoration of women's often overlooked, but vital, contribution to the First World War.
