Women Of The Home Front - Serving The Nation In Photographs
With so many of the men away fighting in Europe or further afield, The Auxiliary Territorial Service, Women's Land Army, Women's Auxiliary Airforce and Women's Royal Navy Service were essential parts to the Home Front. By 1944 over 7 million women were engaged in war work, with 640,000 in the armed forces and over 80,000 in the women's Land Army.These women played a significant role in supporting the war effort and keeping the country running. From taking care of farmland and animal husbandry to testing weapons with live ammunition and transporting aircraft across the country, women from all over the nation stepped up to serve King and Country. The lives of these Service women are presented and commemorated here through a collection of images taken from Mirrorpix's formidable archive.
