Item #48193 : Original era manufacture and photography. This Canadian WWII Women's Army Corps group consists of a named & numbered ID bracelet, cap insignia, collar insignia and original photograph of M.E. Kellier in uniform with this insignia.The employment of female personnel as members of the army, while they belonged to a quite separate organization, created administrative problems. These were finally resolved on 13 March 1942 when military authorities integrated the Canadian Womens Army Corps into the Canadian Army. With its new status, the Corps adopted army rank structures and insignia.CWACmembers wore a cap badge with three joined maple leaves. On their collar badges appeared the helmeted head of Athene Goddess of War. Creation of theCWACwas part of a wider trend in the Canadian military. The army had been preceded by the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) in creating a distinct but integral womens service, eventually known as the Womens Division of theRCAF. The Royal Canadian Navy followed in the summer of 1942 with the Womens Royal Canadian Naval Service.
