On Saturday the 4th of March 2017 the third annual commemoration was held in the Serbian Orthodox Church St Sava, in London for courageous women who, in various medical missions, risked and sacrificed their lives in Serbia and on the related fronts during the Great War. The event was organised by St Sava church and the Circle of Serbian Sisters Kosovka Devojka and was supported by Serbian organisations – Serbian Council of Great Britain, Serbian Society, Serbian City Club, Britic and the Embassy of Republic of Serbia.

Circles of Serbian Sisters "Kosovo Maiden" are organising a Memorial Service (Pomen) to commemorate the women in foreign missions in Serbia during the Great War who risked and sacrificed their lives in Serbia and related fronts. Some of them continued to support the Serbs even after the war had ended, most significantly, Lady Paget. Since 2017 marks the centenary Dr Elsie Inglis' death, the commemoration will pay a special tribute to her life.
Guest speaker: Alan Cumming, Scottish Women's Hospital website
