This is Dundee's story of those that served in the First World War, and of the people left at home
The depot at Abbeville was out of the reach of enemy guns but it was vulnerable to attack by air. On 30 May 1918 nine women died in an air raid. They were the first WAAC deaths on active service. Elizabeth escaped injury but one of her best friends was seriously injured. The whole camp was destroyed during the raid and Elizabeth helped pull survivors from the collapsed remains.
