March 4th 2021 Zoom Talk

We have enjoyed some interesting talks by Zoom, and I am sure our March presentation will be no exception, it is entitled WASB and will be given Elizabeth Lockart-Mure.

During the Second World War, the 14th Army was supported by an intrepid group of women known colloquially as the Wasbies – (the Womens Auxilliary Service Burma or WAS(B)

Across thousands of miles of inhospitable jungle, in conditions of tremendous difficulty and sometimes within the sound of gunfire, the Wasbies ran char and wads, mobile and static canteens, , providing the troops with a constant supply of food and drink.

Elizabeth’s account of these brave women is taken from the surviving diary of Maria Pilbrow, who documented her experiences in India and Burma,.

I am sure this will be an interesting morning.
