Five members of the West Indies Auxiliary Territorial Servic

Photograph of five members of the West Indies Auxiliary Territorial Service sitting on a military vehicle, 1943-1947 (c).In the early stages of the Second World War black Caribbean women wishing to support the war effort were given little support or encouragement by the British government. Voluntary groups in the West Indies were given no financial support from the War Office in London and those wishing to travel to Britain were discouraged either by the racial prejudice of recruiting officers or by policies such as that which stipulated that those wishing to serve in Britain had to pay there own passage across the Atlantic. However, in face of the exigencies of war which necessitated the total mobilisation of the Empire and Commonwealth citizens it became clear that this discriminatory policy could not stand. By 1943 West Indian Women were allowed to join the uniformed services and by the end of the war many hundreds had seen service with these organisations and thousands more contributed through work in essential industries and agriculture.One of 69 photographs relating to the West Indies Auxiliary Territorial Service, 1943-1947.

'Something new in salad'. Salad making gives full scope to your powers of invention. For almost all vegetables are at home in the salad bowl, and you can try them in almost endless combinations. A crisp salad, as appetising to look at as it is to taste, is a very important item in the day's meals. Raw green vegetables are one of the riches sources of vitamin c. You'll remember that this is the vitamin that helps so much to give clear skin, bright eyes and that feeling of vigour which makes life enjoyable.

'Twice as good with egg'. What a blessing it is that you now use almost as many eggs as you want. Thanks to the success of dried egg in this country, arrangements have been made for more eggs to be dried and sent over to us. Better still, the price has come down to 1/3 per 12-egg package. Eggs at I1/4d each in war-time. . . How wise you will be to use all the dried egg you can buy! Date: 1943
