Nurse Eileen de Moulin, whose death occurred in Lewisham Hospital recently, was a member of a family well known in Armidale, and a sister of Rev. Brother Benildus, Director of De La Salle College. The late Miss de Moulin was born in Warwick, Queensland, the daughter of the late Jules Antoino and Harriet de Moulin, and came to Armidale with her parents at an early age. She was educated at St. Ursula's College, Armidale, and received her training as a nurse at the Armidale and New England Hospital. At the outbreak of war she enlisted as a war nurse, and for three years attended to the soldiers serving in the Mesopotamian campaign. While nursing a patient she was bitten by a cobra, which had concealed itself in a mosquito net on the soldier's bed. She suffered much ill-health as a result of the bite, and then another misfortune befell her. When travelling by train to Madras she was attacked by a rabid dog. She managed to shoot the dog, but only after it had bitten her. The after effects of this experience were of such a serious nature that Miss de Moulin was invalided home. When her strength returned she won a public health diploma, became a member of the R.S.L, and served in the Health Department until the time of her last illness. Sisters of the late Miss de Moulin are Miss Bloss de Moulin (Mosman), Miss Lily de Moulin (Manly Public School) and Mrs. C. B. Lewis (Manly). Mr.T. J. Smith, president of the Board of Fire Commissioners, is a brother-in-law. His Lordship Bishop Coleman presided at the obsequies in St. Mary 's Cathedral, Armidale, Rev. Fathers Burchell and Mc Grath (Armidale), Condon (Uralla), McDermott (Bundarra) and Healey (Guyra assisted. Armidale ex-soldiers were fully represented, and at the graveside the Last Post was sounded by Mr. J. Short. With the returned men were two war nurses, Mrs. J. Shortand Mrs. Smith, of Ben Venue. De La Salle Brothers acted as pallbearers. De La Salle students marched before the hearse, and students of St. Ursula's College were present at the Cathedral and represented at the graveside. The boys and girls of St. Patrick's Orphanage joined the cortege en route, and rendered hymns at the graveside. — R.I.P.
