Hi there,

I have a pic G'dad has marked....
"Aotea N.Z. Convalescent Home.
Heliopolis, Cairo."
.....a 3 storey building within a walled yard. Nice clear photo.

There is also a (b grade) pic of a nurse marked...
"My latest" ....but there is nothing to prove she came from Aotea.
Perhaps G'dad dated your aunt!

If the pic of Aotea is useful to anyone I can mail it to them.

One of my aunts and her cousin were nurses in the 'Aotea Convalescant
Hospital' near Alexandria in Egypt in WW1. It was a hospital for NZ
soldiers who had been sick and wounded but not bad enough to be sent back to
NZ. I have her photograph album and this thread has given me the idea to
extract the names from the photos but I cannot promise to do it until later
in the year.
