Question Australian Army Medical Corps 1st WW Nurse

Jo,

An interesting picture, the first one shows what appears to be a Royal Engineers cap badge worn on her right sleeve, this may of course be a Canadian Engineers badge.

Its the cloth 'Royal Australian Army Nursing Service' badge on her arm. Standard issue to all Australian nurses in WWI.

Wonderful pictures.
There is a device which looks like a medal ribbon. Any thoughts?
