Good idea Paul.
Here are the women I have recorded on my database.

NAME WWI MEMORIAL REGION SERVICE
Paterson Ivie Crookedholm Kilmarnock & Loudon


I don't believe that this is a woman and suspect that the memorial celebrates 13728 Private Ivie Paterson, Scots Guards, who was kia in France on the 25th September 1916. He was from Ann Bank, Ayrshire and enlisted in Kilmarnock.

I think that is very likely. I have seen the name Ivie (spelt this way) twice and it was men on both occasions.

I posted this recently on SWGP at Kirkmabreck Churchyard, Creetown for Nurse Elizabeth Thomson.
From the War Dairy of 58th (Scottish) General Hospital, St Omer

1/10/17 During a hostile air raid on the night of 30/9/17 - 1/10/17, three bombs were dropped in the camp at 10.40 pm, ( 2 on Marquees for patients and 1 in the nurses compound). Of the 2 bombs which dropped on the marquees, 1 struck a marquee which was, fortunately unoccupied, the other struck a marquee occupied by patients and 2 nurses, who were on duty. The bomb which fell in the nurses compound struck a bell tent, which was unoccupied as the 2 nurses who sleep in the tent were on night duty. The casualties which have resulted are :- Nurses killed 3, wounded 3 ( 1 dangerously). Other ranks :- killed 16, wounded 60. Total killed 19, wounded 63. Of the other ranks wounded, 14 were transferred to other hospitals and one of these has since died. There has been much damage to canvas and equipment. 54 marquees (hospital, large) have been damaged (2 have been absolutely demolished, while the damage to the others varies from almost complete destruction to mere riddling). 21 bell tents have been damaged ( 1 was completely destroyed by a bomb and 20 have been riddled). Many pieces of iron pierced the new corrugated iron sleeping hut for sisters. 1 piece pierced iron and 3 pieces of asbestos boarding. Numerous panes of glass have been broken in the permanent buildings. One of the ablution houses has been damaged.

Surgeon General MacPherson, the ADMS and the Matron in Chief called today and it was arranged for the transfer of all lying cases to other hospitals so that at night the walking cases left in hospital might go to the cave in the public garden and sleep there. In the evening patients and unit moved to the cave in the public garden and only the police and a few orderlies were left in the camp. The 3 wounded nurses were transferred today to No 10 Stationary Hospital.

2/10/17 The 3 nurses (Sister Climie, Nurse Thompson and Nurse Coles) and the 16 other ranks killed by hostile aircraft on the night of 30/9/17-1/10/17 were buried today at 4:00 pm in the Souvenir Cemetery Longuenesse. Sister Milne, who was dangerously injured in the same air-raid died last night in No 10 Stationary Hospital. 2 other ranks who were wounded have died today, so that the statistics as a result of the raid are, to date :- Dead, nurses 4, other ranks 18. Wounded :- nurses 2, other ranks 58. Totals Dead 22, Wounded 60.

Scott - I think this probably belongs in the SWGP, however Jeanie certainly served in France (does the inscription say 1917?)
She has a Medal Card: http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/D6092656

Medal card of Steele, Jeanie
Queen Mary's Army Auxiliary Corps 21182 Worker

p.s. who is Miller Confused Smile

On the Plean memorial there is one woman (WW2): Helen Collister sometimes spelled Ellen. She was in the ATS and died on 25th December 1941 according to the local paper. She died in hospital in Edinburgh of peritonitis and was buried in Bannockburn cemetery. I don't think I found her on CWGC...
