An ealier discussion on this forum confirms that VADs - although just that, volunteers - did not go entirely unrewarded - or at least not when on 'active service' in military hospitals in wartime. Can anyone supply details / figures or suggest a source?

I have a copy here of the original sheet which gives 1917 pay rates for VADs in military hospitals. If you'd like to email me (via profile or website) I'll send it to you.
