Soldiering on: Sharon Stewart with her children Lucy, 16, Angus, 12, and Connie, five
Mother who juggles the school run with saving lives on the front line
Like so many women, Sharon Stewart knows all about the challenges of being a working mother. As a mum-of-three, she juggles sleepovers, swimming galas and school runs with her demanding job as matron at a private hospital.
But there are few mothers who find themselves unable to do the school pick-up because they are thousands of miles from home dealing with the devastating human toll of war.
And fewer still who win medals for their inspirational work in the service of their country. For as well as her civilian nursing career, Sharon, 43, has served as a medic in the Territorial Army for the last 20 years.
