    Thankyou Chris, I've already spotted my granddad's maiden aunt as a volunteer.

        Found my grandmother(my avatar) and great aunt . What a great resource . I have photographs of them in nurses uniform from the time but it's lovely to see their information cards . Thanks for putting that on . Made my day !

            I just thought I would mention that the reason we haven't taken the link for the Reference Library is because it's already there - under WW1.
            As many of you seem to be finding this one useful perhaps there might be other links in the Reference Library of use for you?

              Sadly I can't find my Gt Grandmother on the list - I know she was in the Red Cross (as a masseuse) & I have a photo of her in her uniform
              Bo

              At present: Marshall, Smith, Harding, Whitford, Lane (in and around Winchcomb).

                It's odd isn't it Bo . My other great aunt Elizabeth Andrews was also in the Red Cross with her sisters and I too have a photo of the 3 of them with all the nurses from the hospital outside the hospital building but weirdly her record card isn't listed . Very strange .

                  its a bit hit and miss on the searching - i just used the surname and scrolled down the pages for my great aunt.
