All-Female British dispatch riders of WW-II
Originally, the Women’s Royal Naval Service (WRNS) was formed in 1917, during WW-I.
Riding on narrow British roads in all weather conditions can be a dangerous enough occupation. Doing so around the clock during WW-II with the German Blitz going on around you required steel nerves.
The bikes used were mostly small, single-cylinder affairs, built specifically for military use.
