Administrative history

The Wanham Branch of the Canadian Red Cross Society was formed in 1939, at the beginning of World War II. Its purpose was to raise funds and make supplies for hospitals, soldiers and victims overseas. The society campaigned yearly in the Wanham, Belloy, Codesa, Eaglesham, Watino, Heart Valley, Tangent and Woking area.
