Women War Workers: Part 1
Last year I detailed some of the many ways women “played their part” during WW2.
Yesterday I highlighted the Women’s Air training Corps. Here are some more: wouldn’t like to sort herbs for the boys?
Australian Women’s Legion
The AWL was a patriotic voluntary organisation that raised funds for the war effort and gave practical support to military personnel within Australia.
Red Cross Transport Drivers
Women’s Reserve Emergency Navy Service
Not to be confused with the WRANS, this volunteer group started in Brisbane prior to WW2, then expanded to other states. It was renamed the Women’s Naval Service (WNS) in December 1941.
