"A constellation of 184 gold stars on the service flag of the department of nursing of the American Red Cross at Washington is the silent token of the supreme sacrifice made by American nurses during the war, at home and overseas. The flag will, in all probability, eventually carry at least 200 stars. Two of the stars represent young women who graduated from Boston hospital and served and died overseas.....Miss Malloch whose home was in Boston, was a graduate of Faulkner Hospital in Jamaica Plain. She was a member of the first Harvard unit and served at Base Hospital No. 22, A.E.F. in 1915. She was one of the Boston nurses who went to Halifax with the Red Cross commission at the time of the disaster in that city.
