I am trying to find the names of the nurses who nursed Freyberg after his aircraft accident in 1944. I have a marble box which was apparently given to those nurses as a thank you at the time and would like to trace who my box was given to.

Iam trying to find a photo of General Freyberg in Hospital after His aircraft accident in 1944. The Army Nursing Sister in the group by His Bed is My Aunty, Connie Lee. I have seen the photograph some years ago in a newspaper, but searching all the obvious websites has not brought it to light. Do You have any suggestions. Thank You

A good starting place is his biography on the DNZB website
