Dr Helen Boyle pioneered medical research in the early 1900’s at a time when women’s contributions to society were less well appreciated than they are today.

The Serbian Ambassador attended because Dr Boyle visited Serbia and performed valuable medical services which resulted in her being awarded Serbia’s highest medal before settling in Hove.
