The English Flora Sandes was the only woman soldier who participated in the First World War. Unlike the other girls of her time, Sandes took horse riding and shooting as her hobby; and was among the first women to hold a driving license. Though she initially planned on participating in the war as a nurse to tend the wound of the soldiers, she was rejected by the Red Cross.
