1915 Wartime Postwoman (U13)

Image of 1915 Wartime Postwoman (U13)


Postwomen, who joined the department in large numbers during the 1914-18 war, first became entitled to uniform in 1915. (Blue wide brim cap and/or straw hat, blue serge skirt, long jacket and boots). In 1924, the straw hat was replaced by the more fashionable blue felt hat 'girl-guide pattern', partly because of the popular fashion of bobbing the hair.
