THE names of Tamworth hospital doctors and nurses who served in World War II are being sought so their contribution can be publicly recognised.
A board listing the names of those who served in World War I already hangs in the hospital’s chapel and archivist Suzanne Turner thought it would be good to create another, to honour those who were involved in World War II.
She and fellow archivist Patsy Smith have already collected and verified the names of five doctors and three nurses, with the help of retired medical officers and the local RSL sub-branch.
Not all served as medical professionals, they’ve found – a Dr Don Howle served as a wing commander in the Royal Australian Air Force.
The archivists want to ensure they have not missed anyone and so have appealed to the public to help them in their quest.
The names will be inscribed in gold lettering on the board, which was made and donated by Hugh Mitchell.
Mrs Turner said the board would be hung in the chapel on Remembrance Day, November 11.
