Their nanip is iiuule uii of the initial letters of the Women's Auxiliai'v .-\rmy Corps, and they are a body which is composed of the numberless voluntary (n'ganl'.-.alions formed by woinen at the beginning of the war, and is made up of the merging of thehC bodies. .^moug tlifMU are the Women's Reserve .Ambulance. who give first aid at the time of Zeiiiiolin i-aids. the Woip.en's Legion v.liose members voluntarily organitanl to furnish cooks and waitresses for camps, ;md the \V(niien Si.'ruallers Territorial Corjis who voluntarily trainted tlieniselves in every kind of signalling, medianical arms, .Morse, airline, cahb'. 1 clcgraphy, wireless, Ir.mi) and heliograph. Wherever the British army � is needed there the "Waacs " are found. Efficiency follows wherever they lead, whether it bo in l^lngland or just back of the firing line in Prance.

BecHuae the "Waacs" have succeeded beyojid the possibility of adverse criticism the government has created 11 smaller branch of service in the navy whitdi is known as tho Women's   � i lioyal Naval Service or for short the The W.
