She had trained as a Nurse in Brisbane, and during the First World War was an Army nurse in the Middle East and Egypt. She worked in the military hospital on Lemnos Island off Gallipoli, and when evacuated, transferred to a hospital in France near the front line.When she returned to Australia after the war, she nursed for a while and tried various other jobs. She lived in New Zealand and married a widower, H. Melsopp. After her husband died, she traveled over to Queensland a few times to visit her family. She suffered from arthritis and was hospitalised for 20 years before she died in 1971. cite: From Wexford they came - The Story of the Wallace Family, by Judy Wallace.

    Sister Flora M'Donald wrote on the 30th of March. She says that for a week they had one wild rush. Some of the sisters nearer things have been having an exciting time. She adds-" I believe that Sister James Wallace has been distinguishing herself, being mentioned in despatches." Sister James-Wallace has been mentioned in despatches. Flora's sister Sadie is still at Rouen, and they are also very busy there. Sister Howard was at the Third Australian General Hospital for some months before Sister M'Donald know she came from Rockhampton. http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article53847445
