Any game or sport you favour, 1940

Any game or sport you favour, 1940. From Life in the W.A.A.F., booklet on the Women's Auxiliary Air Force (WAAF), in Tuck's Better Little Book series. The WAAF, whose members were referred to as WAAFs, was the female auxiliary of the Royal Air Force during World War II, established in 1939. Its members did not serve as aircrew, but although they did not participate in active combat, they were exposed to the same dangers as any on the home front working at military installations. Among their duties were: crewing of barrage balloons, catering, meteorology, radar, aircraft maintenance, transport, communications duties including wireless telephonic and telegraphic operation. [Raphael Tuck & Sons Ltd, London, 1940]

You cannot have efficiency without discipline., 1940

You cannot have efficiency without discipline., 1940. From I'm A Firegirl, booklet on the Auxiliary Fire Service (AFS), in Tuck's Better Little Book series. The Auxiliary Fire Service was formed in 1938 in Britain as part of the Civil Defence Service to supplement the work of brigades at local level. Members of the AFS were unpaid part-time volunteers, but could be called up for whole-time paid service if necessary. Men and women could join, the latter mainly in an administrative role. The illustrations in “I'm A Firegirl” depict what were seen as traditional feminine qualities, (caring, nurturing, making tea!) but also show women being disciplined and efficient.
