Footnotes

  • A.R.R.C. London Gazette 11.6.1966.

    Major Jeffreys-Edwards has over twenty-two years service, and has recently returned from Singapore where she was the Deputy Matron, and during that period her impact on the hospital and its welfare was greater than one would normally expect from the Deputy. It was a period of change, improvement and advance and this officer played a large part in the success with which these changes were carried through. Her clear logical brain and quick intelligent grasp of a problem reduced the administration tasks and laid the foundation of long term planning for the future. Her value to both the Sister Tutor and to the Matron and considerable both in planning nurses' training programme and assuring the highest standard of patient care in the hospital. During two periods of civil labour crisis her assistance was invaluable in ensuring that the nursing and welfare of the patients continued as smoothly as possible. The success with which this Officer carried out her duties is reflected in the legacy she has left behind her. This officer is strongly recommended for the award of the ARRC.

    Tamar Louise Jeffreys-Edwards: Captain 25.2.1949; Major 7.6.1955; Lieutenant Colonel 18.1.1967.
