    Re: Nurse Mary YOUNG , - Scottish heroine of WW2 :

    but coming back to the main story of the Heroine Nurse Mary Young ..........

    Not even mentioned in History lessons as I was told about Edith Cavell but no mention of the Scottish Heroine from just along the road in Aberdeenshire !

    I had never heard this story at all. I was told about Edith Cavell too but nothing of Brave Mary Young. Is there not a memorial at one of the hospitals in Embra to her??

    Dont think she is listed in the Scottish Capital or Aberdeen . Aberdeen has a roll of honour for WW2 I think but I dont think she would get onto that even with the Aberdeen newspaper report of 1945 and her death story ........

    My answer is that something should be done to get her the recognition and awards that she so rightly deserves.

    If the bloody polies can get a medal for a round trip to Afghanistan then why not an award for Mary Young?

    Where do I sign

    I have emailed Aberdeen City Council to see if she is on The Aberdeen Roll of Honour
