Scope and Content

While London and the greater part of the country has been sleeping peacefully during the present lull from air-attack, members of the ATS AA units stand watch during the long dark nights ready to go into action side by side with army gunners. As more and more guns leave our factories to strengthen our defences larger numbers of girls will take over the fire control instruments on gun sites of AA Command, assisting the gunner to beat off the enemy, and playing their part in the defence of the country. They also release a large number of men on home defence for front line training.

Numbered BH.9951 and H.15454.
