Ann’s Story

Ann was in the ATS (Auxiliary Territorial Service). A couple of months before VE day, her boyfriend who was to become her husband, came home on leave from Africa. They decided to get married so on VE day she was a newly married lady (only 18yrs of age). She wasn’t allowed to continue to be in the ATS because married ladies weren’t allowed to be in the forces. Her new husband stayed in the Services until he was demobbed.
