This fantastic photograph* shows women workers in the Fabric Department in 1919. These ladies would have helped build the covers on the R31 & R32 airships. Some are wearing triangular badges - these were "On War Service" badges and were issued by the Minister of Munitions to females taking part in the war effort. They were issued after two months of service and may explain why not everyone is sporting one.
Please take a closer look at the photograph and see if you can identify anyone - with our centenary coming up it would be wonderful to make contact with any relatives of these ladies.
