Beediging 4 officieren in Volkel (Marine)

Convalescent American officers from the American Red Cross hospital at Lancaster Gate, London, "seeing London" with Captain Herbert S. Johnson of Boston now with the American Red Cross in England. The officer in the field-cap is Captain W.A. Buckle of Bristol, Tenn. The other officer on the lower step is Captain P.R. Brummit of Hampton, Tenn. Captain Johnson stands between and behind them. The wounded men wear an arm-band of blue felt to indicate that they are wounded men. Both Buckle and Brummel came from the Kemmel push to London. On Captain Johnson's first visit to Lancaster Gate Hospital, Capt. Buckle handed Capt. Johnson as a gift of piece of shrapnel which had been taken from his own body. "I am afraid you cannot spare it", said Capt. Johnson. "Oh I have plenty more where that came from," replied Buckle

Summary

The Women's Auxiliary Corps (India) was established in 1942 and performed similar duties to Britain's Auxiliary Territorial Service (ATS). These included driving, clerical and cipher work and general services, such as ferrying supplies for the troops. By February 1944 there were 7,993 women in the Corps. It was disbanded in 1947 when India gained its independence.
