ATS Signal Operators UK / 1940s / Propaganda Posters / Unknown / 75x49 Original vintage propaganda poster: ATS as signal operators, day and night at home and abroad, ATS operators send and receive messages, swiftly, accurately. The ATS (Auxiliary Territorial Service, 1938-1949) was the women's branch of the British Army during World War Two. The first women recruited to the Auxiliary Territorial Service (ATS) worked as cooks, clerks and storekeepers. As time went on the range of duties expanded and women served as office, mess and telephone orderlies, drivers, postal workers, ammunition inspectors and signal operators. By June 1945, there were over 190,000 members of the ATS from all across the British Empire and Commonwealth. Good condition, repaired tears.
