Service marks war charity's achievements

Camilla is one of the guests at a service marking the 75th anniversary of a charity set up to help people during the Blitz. The Royal Voluntary Service was founded in 1938 as the Womens Voluntary Services for Air Raid Precautions.

It was formed to help recruit women into the ARP movement assisting civilians during and after air raids by providing emergency rest centres, feeding, first aid, and perhaps most famously assisting with the evacuation and billeting of children.
