Cricket team, composed of members of the Women's Army Auxiliary Corps, France, during World War I. The women in this image are standing posed in a formal grouping. Although mainly wearing their uniforms they also have bits of protective cricket clothing on. It is interesting to note that playing cricket, normally the preserve of males, seems to be a natural pastime for these both women and the soldiers who suggested it. W.A.A.C. stands for Women's Army Auxiliary Corps. [Original reads: 'OFFICIAL PHOTOGRAPH TAKEN ON THE BRITISH WESTERN FRONT IN FRANCE. The W.A.A.C.s in France have responded to a suggestion that they should in their spare time assist in the recovery of convalescent soldiers in Hospitals in France, by inviting them to W.A.A.C. camps to take part in sports.
