Easter Rising : Military Medals

As a result of their work during the Easter Rising, two young ladies were awarded the Military Medal (possibly the first ladies to receive this award).

Louisa Nolan was awarded hers for attending to wounded at Mount St whilst under fire. 


Florence Williams was awarded hers for attending to wounded in the Dublin Castle area whilst under fire.


Having been contacted by relatives of both these ladies as a result of a posting on Boards.ie, I'm hoping to find out a bit more what they subsequently did.
