When SS Vyner Brooke was sinking, the nurses helped others off the ship first, and if they survived the sinking, protected the injured, either on life rafts, in the water or on pieces of debris (Jeffrey 1947). The service was attended by His Excellency General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC (Retd), GovernorGeneral of the Commonwealth of Australia, and His Excellency Mr Kwok Fook Seng, Singapore High Commissioner to Australia, and Mrs Pearl Kwok, as well as many other military and civilian dignitaries, politicians and leading nurses and other health professionals, including Mrs Coral Levett, President, NSW Nurses and Midwives' Association (NSWNMA, ANMF NSW Branch). Co-hosts included All Saints' Anglican Cathedral, Bathurst, Charles Sturt University, Bathurst Hospital, Australian College of Nursing and the Centaur Memorial Fund for Nurses.
