Women Carpenters


A group of female carpenters work in a lumber yard in France, constructing wooden huts. While they do not have a uniform, all the women appear to be wearing a protective coat or pinafore over their clothing. It is thought this photograph was taken by the British official photographer, John Warwick Brooke. Q.M.A.A.C. stands for Queen Mary\’s Army Auxiliary Corps. Formed in 1917 to replace the Women\’s Auxiliary Army Corp, by 1918 around 57,000 women made up the ranks of Q.M.A.A.C.
