Gone But Not Forgotten: Unidentified VAD's

90,000 volunteers worked at home and abroad during World War One. They provided vital aid to naval and military forces, caring for sick and wounded sailors and soldiers.
The pictures below show some of these First World War Red Cross volunteers, but their identities are a mystery. Do you recognise anyone?
