About the event

Professor Alison Fell explores the lives of former members of the Women’s Army Auxiliary Corps (WAAC).

For some members of the WAAC the end of their war service meant returning to a pre-war job, or perhaps taking on a domestic role as a wife and mother. For others, working for the army provided new personal and professional opportunities in the post-war years.

Alison will use service records, press reports, personal writings and the publications of the WAAC Old Comrades Association in order to trace the trajectories of some of these women.

Professor Alison Fell teaches and researches women's experiences during and after the First World War at the University of Leeds.
