Dr Ian Willis presented a very informative talk on the history of Red Cross in Australia, with specific references to Red Cross in Illawarra. The Australian Red Cross Society was established as a voluntary and humanitarian organisation 100 years ago on 13 August 1914. Local Illawarra branches such as Corrimal, Dapto, Kiama, Wollongong and Woonona made a strong contribution to the war effort with 'comfort parcels' and were financially well supported through membership fees, donations and fundraising efforts.
