Dear Editor

My apologies. There is an error in my piece relating to Margaret Fairlie. Fresh evidence shows that this was NOT the Margaret Fairlie who went on to become the first female professor of any discipline at a Scottish university, being appointed to the chair of obstetrics and gynaecology at St Andrews in 1940.

The orderly at Royaumont was another Margaret Fairlie, sister of the Scottish architect Reginald Fairlie. There is more detail on her identification in this post: https://historycompany.co.uk/2022/11/08/in-search-of-the-real-margaret-f…
