The following photo shows a group of seven nurses who served on the Hospital Ship Maheno, at present only one is positively identified.
 
 
They accompanied the New ZealandExpeditionary Force when it took control of German Samoa in August 1914.
Evelyn Brooke is second from left in the back row, she was appointed matron in the hospital ship Maheno, which embarked for Turkey in July 1915. As a hospital ship matron, she was responsible for all nursing arrangements. Much of the work was carried out by male orderlies, whom she trained but were under the command of a non-commissioned officer (the wardmaster).
