This book – donated to Devonport Public Library in Auckland by the local Red Cross branch – records the organisation’s history in New Zealand from the beginning in the early part of last century until the 1980s.

It was published to mark the 50th anniversary of the New Zealand Red Cross Society's formation in 1931 - the logical outcome of a period as a branch of British Red Cross.

Thousands of young Kiwi men crossed the world in 1914 to fight in Europe's war. Most belligerents had their Red Cross Societies to care for sick and wounded soldiers.

In this country, patriotic groups working to supply comforts for the wounded joined forces as the NZ Branch of British Red Cross and Order of St John.

This book reviews the activities, achievements and adversities of 65 years of development, and is lavishly illustrated with black-and-white photographs and illustrations of historic moments in our social history.
