Is this the most selfless mother of all? Inspiring courage of the British Army Colonel who left her young children at Christmas to fight Ebola in Sierra Leone writes Mark Nicol for The Mail on Sunday – 20th December 2014.

Alison McCourt is married with two young children, but she won't be spending Christmas with her family as she is the UK's most senior soldier in the war against ebola in Sierra Leone. If you could personify hope, sacrifice and generosity of spirit this Christmas it would surely come in the form of Lieutenant Colonel Alison McCourt.
