Members of FANY in Calais in 1918. The First Aid Nursing Yeomanry or the Princess’s Royal Volunteer Corps was formed in 1907 in England and comprised entirely of women. These courageous ladies traveled through battlefields to nurse the wounded in both World Wars, and also acted as spies and coders during WWII. Many members were decorated for acts of bravery. FANY is still active today, and exists in several countries.
