The Red Cross set up centres for recording wounded and missing soldiers and sailors during the First World War. Volunteers, including the writer E.M. Forster, searched in villages and hospitals after battles to find out what happened to the missing. In this way, families could finally discover the fate of their loved ones. This was the start of the international tracing and message services. © British Red Cross Museums and Archives Photo 9A group of mainly women volunteer ambulance drivers in Etaples, France, in Image reference 634/IN0484 © British Red Cross Museums and Archives Photo 10Lebanese Red Cross first aid volunteers evacuate an elderly woman from the southern town of Tyre to a hospital in Beirut.
