Menus Munitions and Keeping the Peace

£9.99

Menus, Munitions, and Keeping the Peace. The Home Front Diaries of Gabrielle West, 1914 – 1917. Edited by Avalon West.

When Gabrielle West wrote diaries about her War to her much missed favourite brother, serving in India, she had no idea that a hundred years later they would be of interest to anyone. Gabrielle joined the Red Cross, worked as a volunteer cook in Army Hospitals. She then became part of the Factory Police Force and was among the first Women Constables. She watched Zeppelin raids over London during her night shifts, and spent much of the War looking after the girls in various munitions factories. She took her bicycle and her dog, Rip with her everywhere and many of her pencil drawings are included as illustrations.

The original diaries are in the Imperial War Museum and the Stroud Museum.
