I met Ivan Newman who visited Poperinge to unveil a plaque dedicated to Helen Fairchild, a US nurse who attended the sick in Belgium and was killed by gas poisoning, aged just 33. Her services have never been fully recognised but her niece, now aged 80, never gave up her efforts and now a beautiful plaque stands in her honour.
