The Women of World Two


I stumbled across a facebook page celebrating the women of World War Two here.

Here are some amazing colour photos of the women who helped with the war effort. I love how colour makes them seem more real; just like us.

 

I particularly enjoy these two:



Princess Elizabeth in ATS uniform, 1945.



Norma Jean (later to become Marilyn Monroe) was working during at the Radio Planes Munitions Factory. An army photographer snapped her and encouraged her to become a model. Who knew what was awaiting her!
