British Red Cross WW1 volunteer records go online

The British Red Cross has commenced the upload of records for British volunteers in the First World War. From the site:

Over 90,000 people volunteered for the British Red Cross at home and overseas during the war.
Search for your family’s personnel records, and discover what Red Cross volunteers were doing in your local area 100 years ago.

The personnel records for surnames starting with A and B are currently available. Volunteers are updating the site with more names every few weeks.
