|Ursula Lascelles volunteered along with
thousands of other women, to do nursing work during the war as a member
of the Voluntary Aid Detachment (VAD). She nursed during the battles
of Ypres and was the first line of help for many injured soldiers
on the form line.
The VAD was set up by the British Red Cross society with the Order
of St John of Jerusalem in 1909. As war broke out in 1914, the volunteers
were needed in the roles such as nurses, cooks clerks and ambulance
drivers who all worked together for the sake of the war effort.
