    Over a thousand A.T.S performed valuable sorting work at the home postal centres through which mail for overseas passed, it spoke well of their skill that men who in civilian life were experienced postal workers had given them high credit for a job well done. These women greatly aided the ever expanding postal service of the British Army, and played an important role in making sure that mail was on time.

    Two and a half million letters every week were handfed by an Army postal Depot in the Midlands. Members of the A.T.S (above) sort parcels and other postal matter ready to be posted.
