Biographical Notes

Christina Cameron Mackenzie was the daughter of Peter and Ann (née Cameron) Mackenzie. Christina had come to New Zealand as an infant with her parents. She married Charles Eric Andrews on 28 March 1900 at Wellington, New Zealand. In 1900 Christina was a nurse at Mount View Asylum, Wellington. Christina and Charles were living in Campbell Street, Timaru, by 1911, and moved to Preston Street prior to the war. Mrs C. C. Andrews, of Timaru, wife of Captain Andrews, NZSC, arrived in England at the end of January 1915, intending to go across to France to offer her services as a nurse. From 17 May to 20 October 1915 she worked as an unpaid Special Probationary Nurse at the Glasgow Royal Infirmary (Military Wards). From 25 October 1915 to 31 July 1916 she was on the nursing staff of the 4th London General Hospital (special short period enlistment), where she was when her husband spent a few weeks' leave in June 1916. Mrs Andrews was discharged when her husband was invalided home. In October 1917 she applied for a badge, her address then being C/o Major C. E. Andrews, Headquarters, NZ Military Forces, Wellington, NZ. It seems that she was not eligible for the badge.
