The 1940s1940s

During the Second World War, the Joint War Organisation once again came together, to provide voluntary first aid and nursing care to the injured and those in need. Excluding those mobilised for active service, voluntary membership in the UK reached almost 200,000.

1948 saw the formation of the NHS, requiring local authorities to provide primary ambulance transport. From this point on, St John Ambulance has supported local ambulance trusts in times of need.
