More Info →Palmerston North Red Cross Transport Workers

This voluntary group (later paid) was set up during World War Two. The women had to pass First Aid and mechanics' exams and hold a heavy traffic license to enable them to drive ambulances for the Palmerston North Hospital. They also worked for the Palmerston North Army area, meeting sick and wounded off trains and driving them for treatment.
