Female Constabulary Uniform


Recommended Posts

I don't have any real information on this uniform. I am thinking she went in after the cut off for the medal in 1945. Possibly late 45 or early 46. I could be wrong but I think that medal was no longer issued after September of 1945.

You are correct that it was no longer issued after September 1945. If she went in late 45 or early 46, would she have rated the WWII victory ribbon?

 

I love the uniform. I am just curious is the only reason why I am asking....Kat

Here is a picture of the WAC Detachment in review. Hard to notice in the photo but the WAC's are wearing yellow scarves and not just a tie. I am confident that was just for the review as females did not wear helmet liners and did not pull any actual Constabulary duties. They were clerical staff for the most part as the Constabulary was considered a combat ready force, especially afte the large transition in late 1948.

The photo was taken at the Saar Kaserne in Munich Germany when BG Hobart Gay, who was the CG of the 2nd Constabulary Bde, was presenting the DSM to Col. W. Roppe.
