Brenda Joynson was a qualified nurse from Warrington. When war broke out, eschewing the military nursing services, she joined the First Aid Nursing Yeomanry, an independent all-women paramedical organisation which managed to get to the Western Front in spite of official opposition. The FANY eventually served with three Allied Armies; Belgian, French and British.
