During the First World War and for the immediate post-war period the main work of the British Red Cross was reported in the annual reports of the Joint War Committee and Joint Council respectively. By 1924 the Order of St John and the British Red Cross were working independently and the decision was made to issue separate annual reports. This report is the first issued by the British Red Cross.
