Melrose ladies receiving first aid certificates in 1911


While searching for references to my ancestors in the digitised Southern Reporter old newspaper issues, I found a long list of Melrose ladies who were awarded first aid certificates in 1911. Unfortunately the report is very dark and smudged at the start, but it looks like it involved the Red Cross Society Ambulance Class, with a Dr Calvert giving lessons to ladies in Melrose. Apparently 99% of the class had passed. The newspaper report appeared in the Southern Reporter of 1911 May 25. Here is the list of certificate winners as recorded:
