Hi Nigel,

That's the uniform of the Women's Auxiliary Army Corps.

The dresses, known as "WAAC sacks" were a khaki drill colour with collars and shoulder straps in different colours depending on the trade of the WAAC.

Cheers,

Taff

Thanks for that. Would 'they' have an MIC, service records etc do you know and if so would it be Kew or where else may I find any info on her service?

Sue Light has gave me a gentle prod and saved me from a red face. Only about 7,000 records of some 60,000 have survived and the surviving records are available on - line. No need to dash off to the NA now.

Hi Terry

No worries, I have just been doing a search to no avail. Her last name was Stratford and I have come up with nothing. Enjoy the sun light - on the basis of my lack of results, square eyes etc - I'm off to a dark room to rock back and forwards till the next full moon.

Cheers
