Jon Halfhide was born in Brentwood, Essex, UK in 1961 and now lives in Somerset.
His Mother served in The Queen Alexandra's Royal Army Nursing Corps during WW2, initially in
India close to the Burma border and latterly in Japan where she nursed British POW's after
liberation. Jon has often thought that QA's were the quiet heroines of WW2 and so seeks to highlight their courage and altruistic dedication to the brave wounded "on either side."
