This excellent website gives more info and history about the V.A.D. and other early nursing organisations. Their volunteer members became known as "VADs".

With direct reference to the VADs of the First World War, also see

This webpage about life in Dymock during WW1 mentions the Red Cross Society, and a Mr. A. CHEW of Callow Farm, Dymock.

Good luck Nimrod with this worthwhile event, I wish I was able to attend, I'm sure it will be very interesting. I guess one of your posters looks like this,
