  • For my History internal assessment I had to research about someone who was at Gallipoli and the emotional impact it had on their life. Eva Brooke's was interesting as her veteran work was large and carried on even after the First World War had ended.

    All in all, an inspirational woman who helped our country in many ways.
    May she rest in peace
