TNA podcast: The British Red Cross and its archives

Collections assistant Sarah Cox's presentation from earlier in February gives an overview of the history of the British Red Cross, which was inaugurated on 4th August 1870, and the material in its archives. This includes correspondence from the earliest days, minutes, accounts, the official journal starting in 1914 from the 1910s, WW1 and WW2 service cards, and county records.
Listen to the presentation, shorter than most, from http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/podcasts/
