It was the grave of an ANZAC killed at the landings and later regarded a hero and awarded the Victoria Cross. Was the visitor a dedicated nurse and hospital founder who saved the lives of thousands in a 50-year career - a woman awarded medals by Britain, France and Turkey? Or was it a famous explorer, fluent in Arabic and Persian, a friend of the famous including T E Lawrence and Winston Churchill and the only female delegate among thousands at the Paris Peace Conference in 1919?
