This article appeared in the Preston Guardian in December 1917 and mentions some of the awards made that year.  It also reports the fact that Hester Trimble was Mentioned in Despatches for her role as a voluntary nurse at a military hospital in France run by her father, Dr Trimble.

I haven't been able to trace the Sgt Taylor mentioned in this article, if you know who he is, please get in touch.
