Description

Women played a vital role in the First World War as VADs. These were members of the Voluntary Aid Detachments, a volunteer group of the Red Cross.

Made up of men and women, the Detachments carried out a range of voluntary positions including nursing, transport duties, and the organisation of rest stations, working parties and auxiliary hospitals.

To celebrate Women’s History Month, Gill Hutchinson, chairperson of the Volunteer Council of the Red Cross will give a talk on the role of these women.
