WI Sharp Shooters - WW2

WI or Women's Co-operative Guild in WW2

ok maybe not but still another rare picture of British women in  WW2 with guns

or maybe a future solution to the equal pay question

In December 1941, a more organised but still unofficial Women's Home Defence (WHD) was formed under the direction of Dr Edith Summerskill, Labour MP for Fulham West. WHD members were taught weapons training and basic military training.
