    TRAILL Dorothy Maud : Service Number - Staff Nurse : Place of Birth - Cassilis NSW : Place of Enlistment - N/A : Next of Kin - (Father) TRAILL Arthur Irby She and two brothers, Arthur Traill and James Hamilton Traill, are named on the Cassilis Memorial Gates. Either the creator of the gates or the client who commissioned it didn’t get it quite right – both ‘A Traill’ and ‘D M Traill’ are asterisked as killed in action. In fact ‘D M Traill’ returned from Egypt and took up private nursing after the War. Her brother, Arthur Cecil Traill, was killed in action in France in May 1918. Only a very small number of army nurses died whilst on active service.
