Scope and content

This is a photo of a Red Cross unit, including some Mennonites in German uniforms, being presented to the Czarina. During the Russo-Japanese war, 1904-5, Germany sent a Red Cross Unit to the Russian front. It was a token of friendship. Mennonite young men, who had volunteered to serve in Russian Red Cross units because of their knowledge of the two languages, were delegated to serve in the German unit. The man sitting in front of the official is Peter Dyck. [HR 234]
