Stumbled on to this great photo before, nurses arriving in OZ. What caught my eye is the oversized Rank Bars, big right! One on the far left seems to have a normal sized one from the rest, this one also seems to be wearing a shoulder patch on her trench coat, I dunno, maybe one of the stateside Service Commands and she just didn't remove it when transferred out??

Nurses wore the patch corresponding to their general headquarters or a special higher formation or command. They generally did not wear the patch corresponding to a corps or combat division. This patch would have been appropriate for her to wear.
