Abstract

Shortly before the outbreak of the Second World War the women's auxiliary services were revived in Britain. Disbanded in the aftermath of the First World War, they were re-formed in the late nineteen-thirties as the Auxiliary Territorial Service, the Women's Auxiliary Air Force and the Women's Royal Naval Service. These organizations were to undertake ancillary tasks for the army, R.A.F. and Royal Navy in time of war. This article investigates the re-establishment of the women's services and emphasizes the role women themselves played in gaining re-admittance into the servicemen's sphere
