Women in the Great War

We know a lot about the men in our families who served their country and perhaps were wounded or lost their lives in the Great War. But what were the women doing during this time of great change? Did an adventurous grandmother or great aunt of yours volunteer her services, perhaps as a nurse, driver or administrator, or go out to work on a farm or in a factory to support the war effort? Do you know anything about Daphne Wolton or Agnes Watts from Kibworth? Please contact the Chronicle if you have a story to tell.
