A Century of Red Cross in South Australia
In many countries female non-combatants provided for the needs of the sick and wounded through national Red Cross societies during World War I. An Australian branch of the British Red Cross Society was established 9 days after the outbreak of the war.
Its volunteers through South Australia laboured to provide food, clothing, linen, fruits, vegetables and cash donations to military hospitals.
As part of the centenary celebration of WWI, the State Library of South Australia has organised an exhibition which brings the history of the South Australian Red Cross Division to life through stories, images and objects.
