She gained her nursing experience Aberdeen Royal Infirmary, afterwards spending three years in Westminster Nursing Home. At the outbreak of the war she transferred to the Red Cross Society.

Miss Houston is the first Blantyre lady to receive this decoration, and she is now under orders to go to India.

Her parents, Mr and Mrs Hugh Houston, reside at Nanoevale Cottage, Blantyre.
