It's hard to see detail in the photo, but I would say they are VADs with the BRCS due to the light color of their dress.

Several things indicate this. The main one is the style of head covering. That was a very unique style worn only by the VAD at that time. It was sort of wrapped around the head and tied in the back. They often had a red cross on the front of their apron, but I have seen pictures of them with and without that.

The light color of the dress, might be light blue which was the color dress worn by BRCS VADs. The St John Ambulance VADs wore a gray dress.

Here are some pictures that show the VAD headdress.
