Inspired by “West Indian Women At War: British Racism in WW2” by Ben Bosquet and Colin Douglas
In 1943 300 middle class “coloured” women from across the West Indies were recruited to the ATS, a branch of the British Army.
This film documents for the first time the contribution of these women to WW2.
