Sister Jessie M. Macrae

Date of Paper: 07.04.1944
Surname: Macrae
Forename(s): Jessie M.
Rank: Nursing Sister
Regiment: Eighth Army (later Fifth Army)
Home Address: Bendamph, Torridon


Sister Jessie M. Macrae, killed in action in Italy, was the second daughter of Mr Colin Macrae, Bendamph, Torridon. A former pupil of Dingwall Academy, where she gained her Higher Leaving Certificate, she later entered the nursing profession, qualifying as a SRN and CMB. At the outbreak of war she volunteered for service overseas and served with the Eighth Army throughout the whole of the North African campaign. She followed the Eighth Army to Italy but was later transferred to the Fifth Army battleground. It was while behind the Anzio Bridgehead that she met her death as the result of an enemy air-raid. Possessed of a quiet disposition, modest, she was admirably suited for the noble profession which she adorned. Much sympathy is extended to her father and two sisters.
