Index cards for all those who volunteered with the Red Cross VADs in WW1 are going on line in stages alphabetically. A to E have been uploaded so far with the rest expected to be available by the end of the year.

Access is free at http://www.redcross.org.uk/About-us/Who-we-are/History-and-origin/First-World-War

Neither - Chris Harley of the In From The Cold Project is the man.

I think this may be related to the new information which defines which hospitals (especially Auxiliary hospitals) were "military" making the VADs military rather than civilian deaths.
But don't quote me on that Confused

Thanks Ken

That would make sense if the IFTC are revisiting VAD deaths after the decision on which hospitals are now considered military.

Kind regards
