Auxiliary Territorial Service (ATS) in WWII

#1
Whilst searching for some background info on the ATS, forerunner to the WRAC, during World War II I came across some interesting photos on the web of a POW Camp in Vilvoorde, (Camp 2218) near Brussels in Belgium which was run by the British 21st Army Group and held over 12000 SS, Luftwaffe and female German prisoners. The female prisoners were supervised by ATS attached to the Military Police. My mother was attached to the SASC during WW2.

Hope this doesn't degenerate into a "fit POW birds I'd like to & £#%" thread

Although am aware she performed basic mechanics, Princess Elizabeth was ATS, and could have been POW guard

My godmother ended the war as an ATS officer, after starting in the FANY as an ambulance driver (on the right):
