Women in the War: The Women’s Royal Canadian Naval Service (WRCNS)

A blog post from Library and Archives Canada highlights a long-term project to survey navel photographs in accession 1967-052 “Canada. Dept. of National Defence collection” 1939–1953.
As a first step an index to all photographs that mention servicewomen, 2,652 photographs or 1.3 percent of the total, is being produced. Future steps will be for servicewomen in the other Canadian forces.

This is truly valuable information knowing LAC is pulling together all LAC images from 1939-53 allowing a better ie more complete documenting of Canadian women's military service. Thank-you for sharing.
