About this collection

The Armadale Womens Emergency Corps (AWEC) were trained to carry out a number of support roles during World War Two. Over 50 women volunteered for AWEC, co-ordinated by Roy and Sheila Fletcher. Many of the images in this collection that show the AWEC in action came from the estate of Sylvia Anderson (nee Bailey), with digital copies donated to Birtwistle Local Studies Library in early 2012.
