Women's Army Auxiliary Corps drilling, 1917 (c).

Photograph, World War One (1914-1918), 1917 (c).

Military drill was undertaken to ensure units of individuals developed the discipline and skills needed to work together as a group. It enabled them to move with organisation and efficiency, and behave according to instructions. Members of the WAAC, although not issued with or trained with weapons, spent much time learning to march and form up on parade.

From album containing 55 photographs relating to the Women's Army Auxiliary Corps, 1917-1918.
