#TextileTuesday! Kate Lee Adams of Durham wore these blue cotton twill flight coveralls as a Woman Airforce Service Pilot (WASP) during #WWII. A group of civilian volunteers trained by the Army, the WASPs flew military planes in non-combat situations to free up male pilots for battle missions. Because the women were issued used men’s airplane mechanics’ coveralls, most had to roll up the sleeves and cuffs as shown here.

During both World Wars, many civilian women took up jobs in agriculture, replacing those men who went to war. The women who worked for the Women's Land Army (WLA) were commonly known as Land Girls. In forestry, Women's Timber Corps were known as Lumber Jills. At the height of the First World War the Land Army had a full-time membership of 23,000 members. The number exceeded 80,000 during the Second World War.
