Britain?s Second Front roads are widened

Photograph: Britain?s Second Front roads are widened. Important: these pictures must not be published until D-Day. Many roads in many parts of Britain have been extensively widened and bridges built in order to carry the extra military traffic the Second Front made necessary. This work is carried out by both civilians and military engineers. In many cases, narrow and dangerous roads have been straightened. Where large trees were an encumbrance, they were torn down. This was done at high speed by the most [missing]. Shows an old wooden bridge being replaced by a modern reinforced concrete one to carry the weight of heavier military traffic who will use it for the Second Front. Picture issued April (?) 1944. British Official photograph BH 23391. From a collection of 33 contact prints of British official photographs mounted on card with original associated typescript captions. Photographs chiefly relate to D-Day and the Battle of Normandy, 1944. Some of the captions are incomplete.

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. Date: 1943
