Another in the series from Pickering war weekend hope you enjoy.
Thanks for all your voted and comments on Quite moments and thanks to Pete for his HC and thanks to Alan_Baseley for his personnel award all very much appreciated.

The women wore khaki uniforms with black shoes. Even their underwear was uniform issue and khaki in colour. Women were not allowed to go into action with the men or to use firearms, but apart from that they did the same work as the men and were paid the same wages. Jobs in the army varied from cooks, clerks, telephonists and translators to lorry drivers, motorbike messengers and engineers. Women did most of the driving in the army. They drove everything from staff cars to trucks and had to be able to maintain and repair the vehicles. The ATS anti-aircraft crews watched out for enemy aircraft. They could track them with radar, pick them out with searchlights and aim the large anti-aircraft guns onto them, but only the men were allowed to fire the guns!

Have a great day Brian..............................................................

This could so well have been taken at the time. Excellent portrait with perfect treatment and as others have pointed out, some interesting facts. How would we cope with that today...
