Anna, not sure why you posted a small version and sideways.  I read this as:

Joined W. L. September 27th 1916 went to Ireland with first Draft stayed in camp till sent to Dublin for Demob [Army discharge] which I got on March 5th 1919 when Demobed I was the only one left out of the First draft that went out there,

P.S. Joined up September 27th 1916.  Forgot to put 1916 at top.  Transfered to WAAC Nov 14th 1917.

Ivy Mann 5 Dunns [?] Lane Netherfield Notts.

Just in case you haven't seen it:

"Mann, Ivy, 17501 Waitress, Queen Mary's Army Auxiliary Corps.

LG (23 Jan 1920, p 967): " ....in recognition of valuable services rendered in connection with the War". Recommended for service as a waitress with the 7th Officers' Cadet Battalion, Kilworth, Ireland., from September 1916 until at least 31 December 1918, originally with the Women's Legion and then with the QMAAC, the recommendation simply saying she "worked well" (TNA Ref WO162/66.)

A portrait of photograph of this recipient is preserved in the Imperial War Musem's : 'Women's Work Work Collection' under reference DEC 6/210 (where she is recorded as 'Miss'). The latter also notes on the reverse that Mann had joined the Women's Legion on 27 September 1916 and went on the first draft to Ireland, where she remained in camp. Transferring to the the WAAC on 14 November 1917, Mason continued to serve in Ireland until sent to Dublin to be demobilized on 15 March, 1919-the last of her original draft. Her home address was noted as 5 Dunstan St, Netherfield, Notts."
