Stationed in France

Elizabeth wrote to James with news that she had joined the WAACs. As she expected he was angry but the war had given opportunity to women and empowered them to step in to male roles. She was lonely in Dundee and tired of hearing news of fallen men. Her experience working in the bank gained her a job as a clerk in a motor transport depot in Abbeville. Along with other women she helped coordinate the movement of thousands of vehicles along the front.
