An issued Second World War service and pay book belonging to a member of the Canadian Woman’s Army Corps. Enlisting in 1942, Ruth completed basic training in Kitchener, Ontario. Ruth would complete two additional driving courses in 1943 to become a driver. Before enlisting, it would appear Ruth married a Cpl. Ireson from the 1st Battalion Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders taking his last name. An excellent opportunity for further research of a rarely seen C.W.A.C. pay book.

Manufactured in 1945 by Glisson & Miller, the size 4 suit easily fits a 6 foot stature. Though not easily seen in the photo, the broad arrow mark is partially hidden by the fold at the bottom seam of the tag. The many period appropriate repairs as photographed suggest this suit was used quite extensively but cannot be certain of when.
