Who was Dr. Desmond Bonar(Colinton - Midlothian) father of a nurse on the Italian front in 1916?

+2 votes
Hello, I recently purchased a postcard written on Feb 25th 1916 and addressed to Dr. Desmond Bonar, Colinton, Midlothian, Scotland. The PC is intriguing because it is in good but not perfect Italian and it is stamped by the First British Red Cross Unit for Italy, which had set up a big hospital in the Alpine region, but the writer reports her affiliation rather to be with the CRI (Italian Red Cross). She signs as "Infermiera in Zona di Guerra" (ie. nurse in a war zone), and she addresses Dr. Bonar as "Caro padre' (Dear father).

The only Desmond Bonar that I found on this webpage is a cute little guy born in 2010. Any help with the Bonars of 101 years ago wwill be much appreciated!
