    Thanks I have been assured that it is Volta who I am looking for but hadn't got as far as her birth. She died in Torquay.

    Probably as a courtesy - and with the possibility of getting a better quality image for the article you are producing - and perhaps getting more information - it would be worth contacting Sue Light the writer of the blog.

    She has a website - https://www.scarletfinders.co.uk/ - as well as her blog - and is a regular very knowledgeable contributor to the Great War Forum

    Thank you Gasser for all your hard work, it's leaving me more confused. Perhaps there were two Miss Billings but I know mine rec Royal Red Cross medal because it is documented locally.
