To mark the release of our 1940s Wartime Women’s guides pack, here are some amazing images of women serving on the home front in Britain during the Blitz era. Thanks to the marvelous collection of the Imperial War Museum in particular, who curate a rare series of color transparency slides, some of which we feature here, you can view women who served in the Women’s Land Army ( Land Girls) , the Women’s Auxiliary Air Force ( Waafs), the Auxiliary Territorial Service (ATS) as well as the Women’s Royal Navy, better known as the Wrens or WRNS.
