Description: The Women at War exhibition aims to engage and enthuse people of all ages, but particularly children by telling the story of women who joined the services and had an active, military role.
The Women at War project aims were neatly summarised by former SOE agent Gervase Cowell’s comment to Her Majesty The Queen, in 1999, when he was appointed MBE and she asked him what he was doing now:
‘I help the old to remember and the young to understand.’
The story of Landgirls and women factory workers during the war is well known but little has been done to depict the role of women within the military.
With particular concentration on the The FANYs, SOE and ‘Y’ Service Women at War illustrates the essential ‘front line’ role of women during the war and in civil emergencies during peacetime.
