Nurse Isabel Clark memorial

Memorial plaque

Memorial oak to Nurse Isabel Clark in Oamaru (note the memorial has misspelt her first name 'Isobel').

Nurse Clark lost her life when the transport ship Marquette was sunk by a German submarine in October 1915. She was one of 32 New Zealanders, including ten nurses, who died when the ship went down.
