Red Cross card belonging to Julia Mackenzie

This Red Cross card belonged to Julia Mackenzie who was interviewed by a pupil of Central Primary School, Inverness, as part of a War Detectives project in 2005. Julia's maiden surname was Cumming and 'Shiela' is the Gaelic equivalent of 'Julia'.

Julia served in the Auxiliary Territorial Service (ATS) during World War II. While working in France, she was issued with this Red Cross card as a form of protection in case she was taken prisoner. With it, she would be treated as Red Cross personnel; without it, as any other prisoner of war. Fortunately, she never needed to use it
