Abstract:

Angels of Mercy follows the gripping stories of two different Australian nursing sisters, who overcame the adversities of two very different circumstances. In the 1930s Marjorie Silver, the outback's flying sister, fought almost single-handedly against the isolation, poverty, heat and dust of the far west of New South Wales to bring vital medical assistance to her far-flung patients. Sister Pa Guther, who served in the Far East on the battlefields of Malaya and Singapore, then fought a desperate battle for survival in the prison camps of Sumatra.
