This is the Australian nurse who miraculously survived a horrifying massacre carried out by the Japanese during the Second World War.
Sister Vivian Bullwinkel (pictured) was the sole survivor of the Banka Island massacre on February 16, 1942
On 16 February, 1942, 75 years ago, a group of Australian nurses from the 13th Australian General Hospital were marched into the ocean off an Indonesian island and shot by Japanese soldiers.
The sole survivor was Sister Vivian Bullwinkel, 27, who received a bullet to her hip and lay facedown in the water pretending to be dead until the soldiers left.
The massacre is one of the most infamous war crimes carried out by the Japanese during the war.
The 21 nurses and one civilian had recently escaped from the ship SS Vyner Brooke, after it was sunk by Japanese aircraft, and made it to shore at Radji Beach on Banka Island.
While some civilians, including women and children, went to surrender, the group of nurses, about 100 British soldiers and the wounded waited on the beach.
Japanese soldiers arrived and killed the men, and then motioned for the women to walk into the sea.
Recounts of the shocking event include Sister Esther Sarah Jean Stewart saying: 'Girls, take it, don't squeal.'
Another nurse is said: 'There are two things I hate in life: the Japs and the sea, and today I've got both.'

Matron Irene Drummond said: 'Chin up, girls. I'm proud of you and I love you all' before the group became waist deep in the water and were gunned down by machine guns on the beach.
After the soldiers left, thinking Sister Bullwinkel was dead, she hid with a wounded British soldier for 12 days before the solider died and she decided to surrender.
Sister Bullwinkel was sent as a prisoner of war to the Palemburg camp on Sumatra and remained in the camp for the next three-and-a-half years.
She joined 300 women and children in the camp who were captured after the fall of Singapore.
On Thursday Banka Island (pictured) hosted an official memorial service for the victims of the 1942 massacre, attended by more than 80 people, including friends and relatives of the nurses and civilian internees and existing members of the Australian Army Nursing Corps

According to Australian War Memorial records the nurses kept busy in the early days of their captivity with educational activities and musical concerts.
However, conditions worsened with each transfer to a new camp, food and medical supplies were inadequate, and the death toll rose.
After the war Sister Bullwinkel returned to Australia and retired from the army.
She continued to work as a nurse and to honour her colleagues killed on Banka Island, eventually becoming president of the Australian College of Nursing.
She was awarded the Florence Nightingale Medal, an MBE and the AM for her services.
Sister Bullwinkel died in Perth, Western Australia on July 2, 2000.

On Thursday, an official ceremony was held at Radji Beach and attended by more than 80 people, including friends and relatives of the nurses and civilian internees and existing members of the Australian Army Nursing Corps.
Sydney resident Michael Noyce, whose aunt Kath Neuss was one of the nurses executed in the massacre, told Fairfax Media the memorial was once of the last chances the first generation of relatives would have to celebrate the women's lives.
He took with him a 20kg bronze plaque to place at the site to remember the women who lost their lives.
