How Did the British Red Cross Start?

The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement started in 1863 when Swiss businessman, Henry Dunant, saw thousands of men suffering on both sides of the Battle of Solferino. 

Dunant proposed creating national relief societies, made up of volunteers, trained in peacetime to provide neutral and impartial help to relieve suffering in times of war. In response, a committee was established in Geneva and the founding charter of the Red Cross was drawn up in 1963. 

In turn, when war broke out between France and Prussia in 1870, Colonel Lloyd-Lindsay wrote a letter calling for a National Society to be formed in Britain as in other European nations. 

As a result, the British Society for Aid to the Sick and Wounded in War was formed. This delivered aid and relief to both warring armies during the Franco-Prussian War and in other wars during the 19th century. Eventually, in 1905, the British National Society for Aid to the Sick and Wounded in War was renamed the British Red Cross and was granted its first Royal Charter in 1908 by HM King Edward VII.
