Australian Women’s Army Service
This service was inaugurated in 1941 to allow women to fill jobs within the army so that men could be released for active duty. Over 20,000 women were part of the A.W.A.S. during WW2, in such roles as clerks, typists and cooks, drivers, signallers, and provosts (military police). It was disbanded in 1947, but some of the personnel went on to join the new Women’s Royal Australian Army in 1951.
