CODNOR PARK AND IRONVILLE LADIES’ WAR EFFORT
« on: Tuesday 20 February 18 20:26 GMT (UK) »
I am currently editing and article on the war effort in my village (WW2) for my village newsletter. The author asked if I could improve on the photograph that he gave me to go with the article. As I am not an expert on this I wonder if someone on Rootschat can help me with it.  It might be nice if some colour could be added.
Basically the scenario behind the story to go with the photograph is:  During the War years the ladies of the Women's’ Voluntary Service, (which had been formed by members of the Women's’ Institute, Red Cross and Mothers’ Union) carried out many activities in support of the War effort.
These included washing and repairing clothes for the soldiers stationed locally, who operated search lights and guns.
Many thanks.
The main names that I am researching into at the moment are Cadman,(originating from Bulkington, Warwickshire), Smedley, (Leicestershire and Derbyshire), Paynes (Leicestershire, Yorkshire and Derbyshire) and Udall - you will also find several other names on my web page. I look forward to E-Mails from anyone who would like to share or talk about our family history.

Here is my attempt. I hope the uniform colours are correct, I'm sure I can remember the WRVS in green. I can change the colours if not correct.
