Biographical history

The Vernon Detachment of the B.C. Women's Service Corps was established in Vernon in 1939. The object of the local corps was to train women to act in an auxiliary capacity to the permanent and non-permanent military forces. The work of the corps was divided into four sections: clerical, motor transport, first aid, and commissariat. Additionally, the corps held dances and socials twice a week for the soldiers, with corps members acting as hostesses and dance partners.
