A photograph of boys with a Red Cross banner and stretcher walking along Duke Street by Cardiff Castle's walls. Annotation on the back of the photo describes the boys as 'The Spirit of Young Britain' and explains that this was an unofficial ambulance practice. Children were supported by women volunteers to raise funds for the continuous work of the Red Cross during World War I. The photograph is from the Welch Regiment Museum collection. Spelling of 'Welch' was the traditional spelling used for the Welsh Regiment, it was widely use to refer to the old regiment between 1702-1920. An official approval for 'Welch' was received from the War Office on 27 January 1920. This differs from the current 'Welsh' spelling when referring to the new regiment, such as 'The Royal Welsh.'
